Abstract: The article is focusing on the central role of the emperor Lucius Verus and on the impact of his military campaign against the Parthians (162-166 AD). Lucius Verus was re-evaluated in historiography, starting with the studies of Mazzarino and Lambrechts, which here is retraced through the archaeological and epigraphic sources. During the kingship of Lucius Verus and Marcus Aurelius (161-169 AD) visible divergences in the politics of the emperors, first of all in foreign policy, appear to be in contrast with the showed homonoia. From the archaeological documentation it emerges clearly the image of Lucius Verus as worthy successor of Traianus thanks to the victories on the Parthians (which were celebrated as a reactivation of “the Persian memories”). Noteworthy is the close relationship between the younger co-emperor and the local Greek elites: the most important of them are Herodes Atticus and other notables. Significant archaeological evidences testimony the wide consensus on the emperor Parthicus Maximus among the local communities and the strong support of the aristocracies. Emblematic are some portraits of Lucius Verus, particularly from the theatres at Athens and Messene. Two monuments related to the victory of Marathon are clearly promoting the official message: the antonine copies of the famous Athenian monument in Delphi and the stele of the Marathonomachoi from the villa of Herodes Atticus in Loukou. Dedicated to this last recent discovery is the contribution of M. Tentori Montalto, who discusses a reconstruction of the original monument and the different phases in which the stone was reemployed.
