Working at the Granary (?) – A Latin Inscription in the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum

This paper closely examines a funerary inscription in the museum dedicated to Soteris Epiphania by her husband Speratus which contains the formula ex horreis Faenianis. This is the only reference in extant Latin literature to the granary of Faenius and is commonly thought to refer to the workplace of Speratus. On the contrary, this paper will show that the phrase indicates the area of Rome that the couple was from.
