80 dates, just like tomb 55, from a later period than the other
graves in this row and has been built upon an older tomb a cassone.
In front of the tomb there was a large biclinium and a square brick
base for a table.
There is no inscription above the entrance.
The facade has a cornice with 19 terracotta consoles each on a distance
of 17 cms from each other.
Tomb 80 has been built in a period in which inhumation was already
very common. Inside the burial chamber we therefore find only arcosolia.
The floor of the burial chamber
was probably covered by
a polychrome mosaic, divided in panels on which the heads of the
nine muses were depicted.
A part of this mosaic is nowadays attached on the side-wall of the
nearby tomb 34.
