Amongst these was an ivory doll, equipped with articulated limbs and a carefully carved portrait mistress search. Similar dolls appear in other Roman tombs, all associated with the graves of young girls, and often accompanied by their own miniature grave goods, equivalent to those which equip the deceased.

Drawing on the close visual parallels between the Grottarossa doll, her owner and the mythological prototype of Dido with whom the girl is also identified, this chapter argues that prestigious ivory dolls found in tombs stood as alter-egos for those they were buried alongside. Valued both for their verisimilitude and for their imperishable material, these dolls became representative objects, taking on the identities of the dead girls they accompanied, and projecting, for their grieving families, all the hopes which had been frustrated by premature death.
