English Various strategies were adopted to preserve and honour familial memory in ancient Rome. Most famous are portraits of ancestors, "imagines maiorum", depicting office holders, which marked aristocratic habits of the late Roman Republic. Literary and archaeological sources reveal a range of alternative "imagines" in non-elite circles of later periods which may refer to these prestige objects and express the importance of children, male and female, in the construction of familial identity.
