In 317 (or 307) B.C. Demetrios of Phaleron created a law against elaborate grave monument and funerary displays. From that time on, the most common grave markers were small columns ("kioniskoi" in Greek or "columellae" in Latin). The have a distinct ban near the top, below which would be inscribed the name of the deceased.
