Abstract

The Roman occupation of the Iberian northwest led to the emergence of the epigraphic habit, a new practice of cultural communication introduced by the imperial administration and its agents. Local peoples rapidly adopted this trend, which was disseminated through its social elites. As a form of communication, epigraphs were mainly used for both individual and communal celebrations and self-representations. The material that is evidence of this practice, the engraved surfaces with writings on a variety of topics, are today privileged sources that enable us to address the challenges posed by the study of the societies of classical antiquity, despite the fact that they can provide only a fragmentary picture of the world from which they arise. These are the main concerns of this research, which focuses on southern Callaecia. From a starting point of the review of the epigraphic data originating from western Bracarensis, an attempt has been made to clarify its nature, chronology and representativeness, investigating some of the markers of the society that gave life to the territory, settlements and roads they were connected by during Roman rule.
