TOMB 54

Tomb 54 consists of a burial chamber with an enclosure in front .
The entrances of the enclosure as well as the burial chamber are oriented towards the Via Severiana. The enclosure was mainly occupied by a biclinium flanking
the entrance of the burial chamber.
On the south side tomb 54 leans on tomb 75 and has its facade on one line with that grave. Later on tomb 72 has been built against tomb 54 and 72.
They kept the entrances free.
After the construction of tomb 38 the view on the mainstreet as well as the passage to that street were completely gone.
