Beschreibung

Esen Ogus. Columnar Sarcophagi from Aphrodisias. Aphrodisias, Vol. 9. 208 pages, 347 ill., 55 plates

A remarkable body of several hundred marble sarcophagi of the Roman period survives from Aphrodisias in Caria. The monograph presents those carved with an elaborate design of columnar arcades in which stand various human, divine, and mythological figures. The sarcophagi are set in their local archaeological, epigraphic, and regional contexts, and questions of chronology, social class, family life, and burial hierarchy are discussed in detail.

The Aphrodisian production was most dense in the third century AD, when, due to a general decline in material culture, sarcophagi constitute one of the most important media through which aspects of the period can be understood. Archaeological and epigraphic evidence suggests the main clientele for the sarcophagi at Aphrodisias was to be found among the middling levels of local society. Their considerable cost shows the wealth acquired by middle-level buyers in this period and that sarcophagi satisfied an aspiration for public self-representation.

The broad chronology and design preferences of Aphrodisian sarcophagi are close to those of other sarcophagus groups in Roman Asia Minor, but they also retain a distinctive local style and local features. The sarcophagi of Aphrodisias constitute a significant body of art and material culture that vividly illuminates important aspects of social history in Roman Asia Minor.
