    Abstract

    This article considers the epitaphs that can be connected with the necropolis of Cappella in Misenum. Misenum served as the main base for one of the two principal Roman fleets, and our present-day perception of the site emphasises this aspect. By looking at all the inscriptions from a specific site, and not just those that
    name fleet personnel, the intention here is to examine previously unexplored aspects of life in the harbour city, while still acknowledging the fundamental role played by the fleet. The result is the visualization of a much more diverse community than generally recognized.
