Abstract: In this article five gravestones from Isparta Archaeology Museum are presented. All stones belong to the Roman Imperial Period. The first three gravestones, in the shape of stelae, whose provenance are unknown, are similar to the gravestones stylistically found around the ancient city of Conane. These stones were probably brought to the museum from the county of Gönen. The other two stones, in the shape of a torso, probably brought to the museum from the ancient city of Seleuceia Sidera, belong to the Roman Period as well. The names which are seen on the base of these stones endemic to the region of Pisidia, show that the inhabitants of this region commonly used these kind of stones, in the shape of a torso, especially in the Roman Period.

Keywords: Pisidia; Conana; sepulchral inscriptions; torso.
