cA. 75-60 BCE. Roman Funerary relief of a freed married couple. This was a common portrayal by former slaves. At this time the ratio of slave to citizen was 1 to 3. Only after being freed did their marriage have legal status hence the portrayal has layers of meaning. The wife is idealized in the modesty pose of virtue while the man looks natural wearing the ('arm-sling' style) Toga the symbol of a roman citizen -a free man. Via Statilia, Rome. Capitoline Museums
