In a number of recent contributions I have devoted attention to the
funerary monuments of equestrian officers. A first survey focused in particular on the iconography of the equites who never left their municipium and of the knights who served the emperor throughout the Imperium Romanum in the militiae equestres. In a second study the funerary monuments were examined of the equestrian officers from Italy during the late Republic and early Empire (50 BC – 100 AD). By combining the archaeological, iconographical and epigraphical elements it has been possible to establish a typology and chronology of these monuments. In addition, the historical and institutional background of the evolution could be sketched. Reference may also be made here to studies of the monuments of individual officers.
