[334] Grave of a Carpenter (II CE) Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium - Germania

Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium (Germania, Western Provinces), II CE
AGRW 334 = CIL XIII 8344 = AÉ (1899), no. 10 = AGRW ID# 4207


Grave stone of marble with a Latin inscription and a relief of the deceased above (now missing), now in the Römisch Germanisches Museum in Köln. The inscription demonstrates that sometimes associations were organized into “companies” (centuriae), possibly to help organize social events and fire-fighting duties (see also L40).

For Quintus Vetinius Verus.  His mother Quintinia Materna made this monument for her dearest son, a member of the association (collegium) of carpenters (fabri), third company (centuria), who died at 31 years, 7 months, 26 days.
