Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 305-337 str.Subject(s): Rab; sarcophaguses; Good Shepherd motif; Salona; sepulchral artOnline resources: Click here to access online In: Vjesnik za arheologiju i historiju dalmatinsku 109 (2016), 1 ; str. 305-337Summary: A fragment of a sarcophagus built into a wall in the old section of the town of Rab is published in this work. A relief image of the Good Shepherd is preserved on the fragment, which is the first appearance of this motif outside of the narrower Salona environs. This prompted a consideration of the Salona monuments which have an important place within Early Christian sepulchral art and which to a considerable extent set the tone for debates in the relevant European literature on its formation at the turn of the 3rd into the 4th century. This work contains the first publication of 19th-century photographs tied to the problem of sarcophaguses from Salona. The general conclusion is that the Rab fragment was a local product based on models from Salona.
