Lucia Marrucci's paper examines the polysemic role of the stone in ancient Greece, focussing especially on its relationships with ritual practices and with myths concerning the death. Its aim is to apply to the 'image' of the stone the analysis of Greek myth based on the idea of Polyvalence des Images, shaped by the founder of the Historical Anthropology of the Ancient World, Louis Gernet, in order to investigate some Greek attitudes toward the death.
