My collection of Roman Artifacts!

Recommended Posts

Sorry I haven't been too active on this forum lately, but I did just post up a video on my YouTube channel featuring my modest collection of Roman artifacts.

Feel free to check it out!  (And I apologize for the obvious gaffe; I said 31 AD for 31 BC there at the end!)

Hello and thank you!

With no clear opinion about the Roman belief in an afterlife; what would be the motivation for Roman citizens to keep figurines and perform rituals for deceased family members?

Did the Romans possibly fear the dead? Was there an idea of afterlife before Greek influence?

Your collection is fascinating I enjoyed seeing those items can't imagine how much you love keeping them. Would you happen to know if Romans ever purposely broke figures as ritual offerings?
