Description

The limestone slab, part of the funeral monument dedicated to Quinto Servilio, was recovered in 1934 along the road that leads 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 funerary symbol common in the Roman world. The monument, which due to the stylistic features of the reliefs can be dated between the end of the republican age and the first imperial age, is broken on the right; the missing part had to complete the slab symmetrically, with another portrait and a second inscription. In Venafro three Roman necropolises are known, which developed along the main suburban roads leading to Naples, Rome and Boiano (CB).
