Abstract

The funerary inscriptions for foreign women in Athens can be used as a source on their juridical and social status. The texts of the epitaphs along with the iconography of the monuments and their archaeological context give information on familiar structures, the time of stay in Athens, their scale of values, their social and professional position and their place in the public life of the polis. Some of these aspects are compared with our knowledge about the Athenian women.
