Example text

He proposes that instead of the reciprocal actions of presentation and reception, which unify the ministri and the large figure in Ryberg’s interpretation, the scene should be understood processional statuettes Fig.  Belvedere altar, Vatican Museums. Photo: DAI Rome 7 8 chapter one as two separate actions: the ministri holding their Lares and the magister pouring a libation. Accepting Zanker’s interpretation poses some problems. The broken right arm of the large figure is held horizontally, lacking the declination normally found in one pouring a liquid offering onto an altar.

The term is intended to define them and examine them by their ceremonial function; a statuette could well fit the function, but might in other cases or on other occasions be used fixed in place.

The evidence, both textual and visual, will be discussed chronologically. Within such a framework the evidence falls broadly into three groups.

Among the best known of this group are those appearing on the reliefs attributed to an altar of the Vicomagistri (fig. 1), although some doubt has been voiced as to whether these do in fact belong to an altar (Ryberg, 1955: 75–80; Bonanno, 1976: 48; Anderson, 1984).
