Abstract :
This article deals with tomb no 46 in Thessaloniki (Greece), known as the ‘tomb of Eustorgios’. On the western wall of this painted burial chamber, four persons are illustrated who are mostly interpreted as a family. By comparing this funeral painting with late antique family depictions it should be proved whether the two boys represented are servants instead of the grave owner’s sons - as some scholars already have suggested. Furthermore, the woman Aurelia Prokla who is standing isolated in the north-eastern corner will be discussed.
