Abstract: 
There are two Palmyrene funerary stelae in the archaeological study collection of the American Academy in Rome (nos. H28, H29); neither has seen previous publication. The present study offers an art historical and epigraphic description of these objects, discussing the Palmyrene names found in the inscriptions. Together, they provide some new access points into the onomasticon of Palmyra and its environs.
