TOMB 35 and 36Tek

click to enlarge photographTombs 35 and 36 have been built actually as one grave with two burial chambers, each with their own entrance, facing the Via Severiana. Tomb 35 borders on the south to tomb 34.
Tomb 36 is detached on three sides.
Both graves are arranged for inhumation only. Beneath the floor too burial places were located. The walls have double rows of arcosolia. Between the rubbish of the collapsed walls marble fragments have been found during the excavations. This points to sarcophagi or to arcosolia with marble covers.
The floor had a black and white mosaic.
In tomb 35 are still some traces of flower-decorations in the niches.
These tombs too date from a rather late period (first half of the third century AD).
