69 is one of the tombs that are furthest away from the Via Severiana.
The grave lies behind tomb 87.
Before the building of the latter there used to be a passageway
to the main street.
In spite of her small measurements there were clinae in front of
the entrance. The entrance was turned towards the street. Between
the benches there is a small, rectangular base, probably used as
support for a table. Also alongside the side-walls were benches
of brick. Like the walls of the burial chamber, the whole was painted
The burial chamber was equipped for cremation burials.
The roof and floor are missing, as is the inscription.
No investigations beneath the floor, which was presumably made of
have been done. Therefore we do not know whether formae were created
not in the event of reuse.
On the left side of the clinae a tomb a cassone was
built later on.
Tomb 69 dates back at the time of Trajan.
