Capsae - boîtes à livres

Abstract : Starting from an analysis of the iconographic antique sources concerning the capsae, aimed to protect the books (volumina) during transport, the author asks what sort of remains these box may have left in the archaeological data, especially funerary. The analysis brings to reinterprete several graves where the presence of books was previously unsuspected.
