Roman society was literate, and like other literate societies, it liked to mark events and honor achievements with memorial stones or commemorative slabs. This commomerative slab fragment might have been originally painted for extra-decoration. From Cappuck, Scotland, 2nd century CE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
