Abstract [en]

Late Antiquity was a period of great change in the Roman Empire, when Christianity became the dominating religion, old traditions were abandoned, and temples were destroyed or adapted to suit new secular or religious purposes. In this process, the statuary decorating the private, official, and religious buildings and open areas was either preserved and reused in new contexts, destroyed and reused as spolia in building structures, or burned in lime-kilns to provide lime for new building works.
