heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MA in the Classical Archaeology and the Ancient History of Macedonia at the International Hellenic University. The excavations of many "Macedonian" and cist tombs, found mainly in Macedonia, have revealed wonderful wall paintings, which provide priceless information on ancient painting and especially on funerary art. These paintings also provide information about the social, religious, and historical context of the period in which they were created. The iconography of these tombs, which were the graves of members of the Macedonian aristocracy and members of the royal family, reflects the institutions of this society. Thus, men's tombs often contain pictorial references to the army, the battle, the hunting, and the symposium, which were the most important activities of the elite men, while some women's tombs contain depictions with items that would be found in a woman's quarters. Religious beliefs and sacred rituals are reflected in depictions that refer to the Afterlife and deities associated with it, such as Persephone, Pluto and the Psychopompos Hermes, in depictions of altars and perirrhanteria, as well as in a depiction of the judgment of the soul. At this point, I would like to acknowledge and give my warmest thanks to my supervisor Professor Athanasia Kyriakou for her assistance and guidance in order to successfully complete this thesis. I would also like to thank my other professors at the International Hellenic University who helped me to enrich my knowledge in Ancient Macedonia during my studies.
