- The inscription known as the Laudatio Turiae (henceforth LT), although far from complete, is one of the longest surviving commemorative texts from the Roman world. About half of the original has been transmitted to us. Its form as a laudatio in honour of a woman generates its own interest - one of only three survivors in the genre, and by far the longest and most detailed. The laudatio started as a male preserve, but had been extended to women in the Late Republic. Features of the presentation in the second person directly to the recipient, in the so-called du-Stil, have been noted.
