The dextrarum iunctio was the ceremonial handshake that two spouses made at the time of marriage. The representation of the spouses in the act of shaking their right hands (dextrarum iunctio inter coniuges) is a recurring theme of pagan and Christian Roman iconography, starting from the end of the Republican age until the beginning of the 7th century; this gesture also meant harmony, affinity, friendship and loyalty.
