Tomb N
Tomb N is the most important and interesting tomb of the group. It was also the tomb were
the escavation of these 'channeltombs' started in 1925.
One enters tomb N from tomb M by a large portico. The portico, mentioned in the inscription near the entrance of tomb I, is probably the same. In that case, tomb N was meant for Lucius Genucius Epaphroditus and Maria Deutera with their descendants.
