Description

The limestone slab, part of the funerary monument dedicated to Quinto Servilio, was recovered in 1934 along the road from Venafro (IS) to Teano (CE), at the height of the New Bridge over the Rava stream. In addition to the inscription, there is a box with the portrait of the deceased and the representation of a large face of Gorgon, a common funerary symbol in the Roman world. The monument, which due to the stylistic characteristics of the reliefs can be dated between the end of the Republican age and the early imperial age, is broken on the right; the missing part was to complete the plate symmetrically, with another portrait and a second inscription. In Venafro there are three Roman necropolises, which developed along the main extra-urban roads that led to Naples, Rome and Boiano (CB).
