Ilias Arnauotoglou

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the evidence for professional associations in Hierapolis in Phrygia. It is argued that the evidence suggests that these associations were particularly involved in ‘memory management’: epigraphic evidence reveals how individuals, not necessarily themselves members of professional associations, endowed associations with sums of money to maintain their tomb, or to perform certain rituals related to their post-mortem well-being—to the social benefit of both the commemorated individual, and the professional association.
