Hello all:

 

My question is for Late Antiquity 5th century.  Is it reasonable to say that a fictitious lesser son of a real senator—the senator later became an emperor in the east— and the son who was killed in battle be buried in the family tomb of the wife of equal status? (She is alive but her mother and father are dead. She is an only child).  

 

I'm trying to find out if I'm taking a literary license or not by setting things up this way.  Any help or sources are appreciated as always.

Pretty much up to the family concerned if we're talking about a small mausleum.

Thanks, Caldrail!!  This information makes things easier! :-)  I tried looking at your website but got pushed into some warfare site.  I will look again later.  I've been thinking of adding my website to my signature, but sometimes I like my anonymity. Hmm. I have to think about it. I suppose a published writer shouldn't want to hide. Haha.  Thanks again.

I wouldn't bother with that site unless you like WH40K. There's nothing Roman there!
