They would be taken out and brought with them to festivals, etc. The belief was that they would continue to be included in the ways of life. - Slaves where not allowed to have them - Freed slaves were allowed to have them - Funerary relief with portraits of Gessii- p. 172 (7-5) Rome, 30BC, Republic. o Marble o Was designed to decorate the fissad of their burial area o Publies Geesiis middle figure, dressed like a soldier, was a soldier.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
