"Ranging throughout the Roman world - from Rome to Pompeii, from Britain to Jerusalem - the author examines funeral practices from a wide variety of perspectives. Toynbee first examines Roman beliefs about death and the afterlife, revealing that few Romans believed in the Elysian Fields of poetic invention. Also examined are the rituals associated with burial and mourning, descriptions of the layout and finances of cemeteries, the tomb types of both the rich and the poor, the types of grave markers and monuments, and tomb furnishings."--Publisher
Animals in Roman life and art by J. M. C Toynbee( Book )

37 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romans clearly loved their pets and gave them human names. The wealthiest kept gazelles and ibex on their estates as living lawn ornaments. At the same time, they imported exotic animals from Africa and then slaughtered them in both gladiatorial combat and cold-blooded spectacle. Animals in Roman Life and Art explores animals in Roman iconography, Roman knowledge - both factual and fanciful - about various fauna, and Roman use of animals for food, clothing, transport, war, entertainment, religious ceremony, and companionship. Arranged by species, J.M.C Toynbee's magisterial survey ranges from the exotic (the rhinoceros and hippopotamus) to the commonplace (dogs and cats). Toynbee concludes her study with a discussion of Roman beliefs about animals in the afterlife, where, according to Virgil, "the herds will not fear the mighty lion" and "the timid deer will ... drink beside the hounds."
