Chapter Summary

This paper describes about two statue base inscriptions and a convoluted tale of interpretation based on readings and re-readings of these inscriptions over the last 100+ years. It also considers the social fabric of ancient Corinth in different periods, and examines the question why Annia Appia Regilla Caucidia Tertulla might have been honored long after her death and by whom. To evaluate Kent's argument, it is necessary to consider the relationship between the family of Regilla and Herodes and the Corinthia, to review the epigraphic evidence for and against the claim that the inscriptions were recut, and then to consider the social realities that might explain how this re-inscribing could have happened. The chapter explores explored: In what circumstances could such a base have been recut? Who might have had the motivation to do so? Where did the re-erected bases/statues stand? When could a hypothetical recutting have taken place?

Keywords: Annia Appia Regilla Caucidia Tertulla; fourth-century Corinth; Kent's argument; re-inscribed bases
