The Tomb of Vestorius Priscus, who was buried outside the Vesuvian Gate at Pompeii in 75/76 ce, is decorated with art that encourages our awareness of the theme of personal aggrandizement in Roman public art. The images in the central panels on the inner surfaces of the tomb’s enclosure walls show a range of high status iconography designed to create an identity of the deceased as an ­important man in Pompeii defined by his public service and connections. The six major panels include a large ­silver table service of the type found on display in a ­triclinium, a high status banquet or symposium – likely also taking place in a triclinium, a pair of gladiators, Vestorius Priscus s­ tanding in the tablinum of his house – the room where he would receive clients, Priscus seated surrounded by attentive listeners, and a paradeisos.

It projects his status, not his ownership, much like the scene of Priscus surrounded by attentive listeners indicates status, but is not thought to reflect any particular episode. The emphasis on the spaces and decor of his home brings us to another issue, that of the place of the home in the Roman elite world. This represents another c­ ultural gulf between ourselves and the Romans. 14 INTRODUCTION TO ROMAN ART HISTORY Art, Context, and Social Status II: The Roman House otium Latin term for leisure, it includes time spent on reading, writing, and academic activities, including rest.

What is not readily apparent is that the resulting work then represents a series of conclusions made by the restorers and not an ancient work of art per se. In effect, reconstructions mask the tremendous number of uncertainties and suppositions scholars are faced with. In previous ­centuries the goal of restoration was to make an object look new so that the actual ancient portion could not be distinguished from the more recent repairs. An excellent example of this is the statue that has been ­displayed and published in many art ­history texts as a Roman man holding the busts of his ancestors.
