heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MA in Classical Archaeology and the Ancient History of Macedonia at the International Hellenic University. During Antiquity, people used to commemorate their deceased by placing highly visible sculptures as markers on their graves, such as the funerary stelae and other monuments. Funerary reliefs were considered the symbols of the deceased and they play a significant role in the research and studies for many reasons. Not only do they represent the beliefs of the society regarding life and death issues, but also they provide information about the artistic expression of local or foreign workshops, of which they were products. Starting with a short historical overview on the Roman Period in the region of Macedonia, this Thesis discusses the subject of funerary banquet reliefs in Roman Macedonia in four main chapters. Chapter I describes the iconography of the funerary banquet, the existence of the subject from the Archaic and the Classical period and its development in correlation with the development of the banqueting rituals and customs in the Roman society. The second Chapter presents two of the most significant sculptural production centers of banquet reliefs in Macedonia during the Roman period, namely Veroia and Thasos - two highly important cities in Roman Macedonia. Each workshop is examined through the typological and iconographical development of the banquet reliefs, whereas an attempt is made to understand the Thasian or the Veroian local societies – at least as they are presented in these banquet reliefs. Chapter three is dealing with a different kind of funerary reliefs, the stelae or round reliefs with multifigured family portraits, through the presentation of the production of Thessaloniki and Serres, two cities that again were important and of high-quality sculptural centers. The last and forth chapter presents the concluding discussion about the social status of women and children within the Roman society in general and into Roman Macedonia in specific – as deducted through their depiction in the aforementioned funerary reliefs.
