Tomb 57 is, like tomb 58 oriented towards the
main street. This suggests a secondary
road in front of both tombs.
The two detached graves are rather isolated from the other tombs
in the necropolis.
Originally tomb 57 was only used as a columbarium but didn't escape
in later time,
as most of the tombs, from re-organisation.
Above the entrance there is a marble slab with the following inscription:
. M . SEPTIMIAE . TYCHENI .
. AEMILIVS . TYRANNVS . CONIVGI
. ET . LECANIVS .
. SORORI . PIAENTISSIME
. ET .SVIS . OMNIBVS .
According to the text the grave was built for
Septimia Tyche by Publius Aemilius Tyrannus
and Lecanius Zosimus, for the one his beloved wife and for the other
his very pious sister,
and for the other members of the family.
