Abstract

Sculptures of Roman times from Boeotia were for long only known from their short descriptions in the collective publications of G. Körte (1878) and A. De Ridder (1922). The re-exhibition works in the archaeological museums of Schimatari (Tanagra), Chaeronea and Thebes have allowed the study of already known sculptures as well as unpublished ones. Starting from the trophies that Sulla erected in memory of the victories at Chaeronea and Orchomenos (86 BC), the present paper attempts to include the several categories of Beotian sculptures that have come to light in a context covering a wide chronological range (1st cent. BC – 5th cent. AD). The use of pentelic marble, the original works to which they are related and their execution confirm that copies of idealised statues, portrait statues as well as portrait heads come in their majority from Athens. Besides, most of the funerary stelae and sarcophagi have been imported from Attica. Boeotian sculpture production mostly uses limestone and adjusts to Attic prototypes. Characteristic Boeotian works are funerary altars depicting heroized dead persons (the hero-horseman or -woman).
