TOMB 39Tek

Tomb 39 has a burial chamber equipped for both inhumation and cremation.
On the right side the tomb borders on tomb 42 and on the left side partly on the enclosure
of tomb 38. Tomb 39 shares its facade on the right side with the back-wall of tomb 40.
In the burial chamber the upper walls were occupied by a central,
semicircular niche with stucco columns flanked by two rows of small,
rectangular niches.
The lower parts of three walls contained two arcosolia each
and the wall with the entrance only one.
Beneath the floor, once covered with black and white mosaic,
there were 10 formae, each with room for one body.
Several of these graves were closed by tiles with stamps, by which
we now know the exact date, 160 AD.
