Since Roman times a symbol of marital affection has been the dextrarum iunctio, the clasping of right hands. This image has been very common in the United States, especially in the nineteenth century. Above (figure 1) is an image of a dextrarum iunctio on a stone that has fallen and been mostly covered. I find it Romantic and, as the Italians would say, suggestivo. Figure 2 shows a Roman version.
