Abstract(s)
25 Latin inscriptions testify that in specific situations divine wrath was invoked in the form of the name of the gods in the accusative + iratum/-am habeat. The gods were instrumentalized to maintain order in everyday situations. In this way, people tried to prevent the robbery and desecration of graves and to avoid damage and fecalization, especially in public spaces. The testimonies show a wide geographical distribution and address the most diverse deities.
