Abstract: Tornar-se mãe na Grécia antiga poderia ser uma experiência muito dolorosa e arriscada. Segundo alguns estudiosos, as fontes literárias e iconográficas atestam a associação no pensamento grego entre a morte no parto e a morte em combate. O contributo que propomos para esta discussão baseia-se na análise de treze epigramas funerários da Antologia Palatina (7. 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168, 462, 463, 464, 465, 528, 729, 730).
To become a mother in Ancient Greece could be a very painful and dangerous experience. For some scholars, literary and iconographic sources support the claim of an association in Greek thought between death in childbirth and death in battle. Our approach to this discussion is based on the analysis of thirteen funerary epigrams from the Palatine Anthology (7. 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168, 462, 463, 464, 465, 528, 729 730).
