The story reproduces the keynote speech that Mary Beard presented to the final EAGLE conference held in Rome on Jan, 27-29 2016. Multimedia content from the EAGLE collection illustrating the monuments quoted in Professor Beard's speech have been added to the story, together with the video clips of the BBC show "Meet the Romans" shown at the conference
This story is based on an original story (in Italian) by M. Blasi. A playful inscription from Isernia welcomes you to one of the funniest inns in the whole Roman Empire! Meet the innkeeper, Mr. Erotic (Callidius Eroticus), and his wife Ms. Pleasure (Fannia Voluptas). At the check-out, if you have any question on your itemized bill, don't forget to ask the landlord!
To get a synoptic view of all the inscriptions with funerary destination that are currently available in the EAGLE collection we will use the Type of Inscription field of the Advanced Search. This field actually triggers a menu where the preferred labels in the EAGLE controlled vocabulary are reported; the user has only to pick the desired value in order to perform the query.
