Yes, you are subscribed -- again, after lo these many years, and  
daring to follow up on a question from 17 years ago when this list was  
still in its "puppy" days! Welcome back!

My own search of the archives doesn't find any follow-up on the

"univira" is, I think, a not uncommon adjective of praise on epitaphs  
of Roman women.  There's an echo of this in the celebrated elegy of  
Propertius on Cornelia:

Propertius 4.12.67-68:
  filia, tu specimen censurae nata paternae,

             fac teneas unum nos imitata uirum.
