Description This type of funerary monument, a framed grave relief, was most common during the era of the Roman Republic (509-27 BC). The realistic treatment of the eyes, the woman's hairstyle, with her long braids wound around her head, and the man's short beard indicate that this is a later example from the Hadrianic (AD 117-138) or Antonine (AD 138-192) period.
