Thank you for a fascinating talk. To go back to your introduction, I am in New York City and if not for this being done online there's no way I could have seen it.

I notice that there is so much touching going on in each of the objects that you discussed—the touching of *things* used in role-play and of *one another* to connect each body to one another—do you intend to explore touch in games, gaming, play, etcetera? The haptics, I suppose, of these playful representations? This seems so interesting considering that the body of the deceased is sort of absent or removed from the viewer–in this “nowhere state” you describe death as.

Question: what about artistic credit? Was there any recognition of preferred sarcophagus artist(s)?
Lauren Ream

I hope these continue to be offered in a virtual matter as well!!

In what locations were these sarcophagi found, and how were they excavated?
Jenny Bottrell
01:52:45
Going off of Thomas's question - were the uncarved figures on sarcophagi likely painted as well?
Ryan Jacobelli
01:58:41
were any other gods depicted with the theme of play on Roman sarcophagi, or was it solely Dionysus?
