Roman sculpture in domestic spaces in context: the evidence of the third and fourth century AD in Roman Ostia

In the proposed poster the display of Roman sculpture in domestic spaces will be discussed regarding iconographic aspects (ideal sculpture), reworked/reused statues and portraits, based on the sculptural evidence in the Domus della Fortuna Annonaria in Ostia. The sculptures in the Domus will be studied by the proposer within a project which starts in October 2015. Moreover, comparative studies of other domestic spaces in Ostia will give a general view on the sculptural decoration in the period of time under discussion, considering historical and social contexts.
