A small part of the facade of tomb 7 lies against the back-wall of tomb 9,
which was clearly built earlier. The bigger part coincides with the back-wall of tomb 8,
located in front of tomb 7, which can only be reached via that grave.
The tomb was only used for inhumation in the niches alongside
the walls as well as under the floor.
Below the sand the bust of a certain C. Volcacius Myropnous, whose
name is written in Greek on the base of the bust, has been found (Ostian museum).
