dc.description.abstractThis commentary provides a commentary on the 110-line poem inscribed on the tomb of the Flavii at Cillium. As an inscription the poem serves as a decoration on the tomb of the deceased, but because of his obvious ability, skill, and education, the poet and his composition deserve independent study. By examining the poet's composition both independently as a stand-alone poem and in relation to the monument on which it is inscribed, this commentary provides evidence for the poet's familiarity with Latin literature and shows how he manipulates common literary tropes and themes in order to apply them to the deceased and the Roman North African society of which he was a part.
