This paper re-examines the inscription of an honorary monument of the Domitii Ahenobarbi found reused in a compitum from the Area Sacra di Sant’Omobono (AEp 1991, 279). Its main contention is that Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus (cos. 96 BCE) could not be both the commissioner and one of the three Domitii honoured by the monument. It is likely that these Domitii were the first three consuls of the family (192, 162, 122). Some hypotheses about the chronology of the monument and its exploitation in the contemporary political arena are put forward.

Abstract

This paper re-examines the inscription of an honorary monument of the Domitii Ahenobarbi found reused in a compitum from the Area Sacra di Sant’Omobono (AEp 1991, 279). Its main contention is that Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus (cos. 96 BCE) could not be both the commissioner and one of the three Domitii honoured by the monument. It is likely that these Domitii were the first three consuls of the family (192, 162, 122). Some hypotheses about the chronology of the monument and its exploitation in the contemporary political arena are put forward.
