Tunis, Musées du Bardo. 80 The social status of almost all 176 honorands can be determined. , when the honorific inscription became a regular feature. D. D. does not entail the disappearance of honorific statues in general. Statues were still being dedicated, but in much smaller numbers. 84 In addition, certain tendencies in the chronological distribution of the honorands’ social status can also be deduced. I follow here the two basic social classes as defined by Forbis and Alföldy: 1. The imperial aristocracy, including senators and equestrians with careers in the imperial administration, and 2.

It has also been suggested that agalma was used to designate statues made of marble which in the East is a more valuable material and the one usually reserved for gods and heroes. These explanations are however not only highly problematic but also without a secure evidential basis. 67 Other honours associated with the awarding of a statue might also be mentioned in the inscription. 69 When higher officials received these honours, there is some evidence to suggest that a kind of central office would supply to local communities the correct cursus honorum (career description) of the honorand.

The variations in dedicatory practices and in the social composition of honorands in Rome and in the Italian cities should inevitably be seen in the light of the much disputed ius imaginum. 32 There is little in the literary sources to confirm the existence of such a law. , the limitation of awarding statues primarily to high ranking and distinguished senators, the gradual disappearance of images of non imperial persons from Rome’s public squares during the Early Empire, and the regulations imposed during the Late Empire,34 leave no doubt that certain restrictions did prevail.
