Tod In Rom [GER]

English summary: Tomb inscriptions offer us information about the lives of well-known as well as unknown Romans and in fact manage to provide a degree of immortality to the dead-from slaves to emperors!-The earth keeps the body, the name is kept by the stone...- - these were the words used to say good-bye to the deceased in Ancent Rome. The sometimes very elaborate tomb monuments were used to preserve information on life and fate, career, or job of the deceased by decorating them with inscriptions. This volume presents the tomb inscriptions of very different people, from bakers to charioteers, from slaves to emperors - providing photographs and the original text as well as translations and commentaries. They can be found in prominent places in Rome or in the most important museums of the city. The reader will be able to understand the monuments in situ and put them into their proper historical context. German description: Grabinschriften vermitteln Lebensbilder bekannter und unbekannter Romer und verleihen den Toten ein Stueck Unsterblichkeit - vom Sklaven bis zum Kaiser!-Die Erde bewahrt den Leib, den Namen der Stein...- - mit diesen Worten verabschiedete man sich im alten Rom von den Verstorbenen. An z. T. aufwendigen Grabbauten hielt man Informationen ueber Leben und Schicksal, Karriere oder Beruf der Verstorbenen in Inschriften fest. Dieses Buch prasentiert die Grabinschriften unterschiedlichster Menschen, vom Backer bis zum Wagenlenker, vom Sklaven bis zum Kaiser - mit Foto und Originaltext, Ubersetzung und Kommentar. Sie sind an markanten Statten in Rom und in den bedeutendsten Museen der Stadt zu finden. Der Leser lernt, vor Ort die Monumente zu verstehen und sie historisch einzuordnen.
