This week on Thursday, December 5th (UH 448, 3.10-4.10), Classics Coffee Hour invites you to the talk by Dr. Celia Sanchez Natalias with the title
"One for all (and all for one?): The curse(s) against the legatus Rufus and his men".
This paper will explore a Latin curse tablet against the legatus Rufus and his men. Although the tablet comes from an unknown archaeological context, palaeographical and prosopographical analysis suggests a possible origin for the piece in Hispania Citerior. Comparing our curse tablet with three other curses aimed against the same legatus (Q. Pomponius Rufus cos. suff. 95 AD) also forces us to ask about his actions during his time in Hispania Citerior.
