Document Summary

Interchange and shared visual language among different groups all of whom were under the general administrative, political military ,economic, umbrella of the roman empire. And to that list we add the cultural umbrella. Both christians and jews participated in a general cultural enterprise (engraved gems for rings) which is part of the roman world. So regardless of your religious affiliation it didn"t prevent you from still being a part of the broader roman cultural empire. Most show scenes from dyonisis or the four seasons in 3rd century. However there are also examples that have jewish symbols (candlebra within medallion) Can be custom made depending on who wants the sarcophagus because it"s commercial market. Not just economic issue - a level of acceptance on behalf of clientele willing to take sarcophagus with iconography similar to those buried as jews, pagans, etc.
