Chapter Summary

The ancient pompa circensis has been at the focus of several studies from the beginning of the twentieth century onwards. In these, particular attention has been paid to its structure and development (especially during the Republican age), to the feasts during which the pompa paraded through Roman streets, to the pompa connection to Greek models, and, finally, to the relationships between the pompa circensis and the other main Roman processions, such as pompa triumphalis and pompa funebris. Nevertheless, the epigraphic, numismatic, and archaeological sources reveal a lot of useful information, allowing us to overcome to an extent the deficiencies of our literary documentation, and to identify the modifications made to the pompa circensis during the first two centuries of the Empire.

Keywords: domus Augusta; epigraphic; funebris; numismatic; pompa circensis; triumphalis
