TOMB 13Tek

Tomb 13, 14 and 15 are part of one facade. Originally they looked out over the Via Severiana. After the erection of tomb 12 the view towards the main-street was cut off. Also the biclinium, which was probably in front of tomb 13 (comparable with tomb 15) had to disappear.
The only remaining trace is a moulding of 40 centimetres on a level with
the doorstep, which continues up to tomb 14.
Above the entrance we see a marble slab with inscription.
The first part is missing:

himself and for his son Marcus Roscius
Sentianus, for his freedmen and their heirs.
Further there was the regular phrase of the
non- transferability of the tomb to a third party.

H(oc) M(onumentum) H(eredem) E(xternum)
N(on) S(equetur).
