Columbarium

The columborium discovered in 1831 by Pietro Campana is located not far from the Aurelian Walls.

Entrance was down a side road off the Via Latina.

The burial chamber, built in brick-faced concrete, dates back to the period between Tiberius and Claudius (14-54 AD), as indicated by two inscriptions found inside.

The admirable paintings decorating the walls of the burial chamber are from the same period.
