McClanahan Lecture Series
Death and Transfiguration:
The Tomb of Bibulus and the Remaking of Rome
Dr. Tyler Lansford, University of Colorado Boulder
Monday, October 25th, 2021 | 7:00 p.m. | Virtual Webinar
Towards the end of the Roman Republic, a minor magistrate called Gaius Publicius Bibulus was accorded the honor of public burial at the southern end of the Campus Martius. Despite the small size and relative fragility of his tomb, its inscribed facade has remained in situ and visible for more than two millennia – a persistent if unlikely witness to the tremendous cycles of collapse and recovery, death and renewal that have transformed central Rome beyond recognition down the centuries.
