Roman tombs of the 1st and 2nd centuries were often monuments to the families that owned them and were filled with statues as well as burials. Join Lisa Anderson-Zhu, Associate Curator, Art of the Mediterranean, 5th millennium BCE to 4th century CE, for an exploration of the original context, decoration, and occupants of the so-called “Licinian Tomb,” where the seven Roman sarcophagi now at the Walters were found in the 19th century.
