Mau records three further tombs.

1. Unexcavated bench

"A third bench, close to the second, lies under a modern house and has not been uncovered,"

See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. p. 430-1.

 

2. Square tomb of Cn Clovatius

"Further from the gate a rectangular seat, probably belonging to the same series of monuments, was discovered in 1854; It was built in memory of a certain Clovatius, duumvir, as shown by a fragment of an inscription that came to light at the same time."

See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. p. 430-1.

CIL X 1065 records the inscription "To Gnaeus Clovatius, son of Gnaeus, duumvir with judicial power, military tribune; {burial} place {given  in accordance with a decree of the town councillors}."

See Cooley, A. and M.G.L., 2004. Pompeii : A Sourcebook. London : Routledge. p. 140; G8.

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), this read -

[C]n(aeo) Clovatio Cn(aei) f(ilio) IIvir(o) i(ure) d(icundo) tr(ibuno) mil(itum) loc[      [CIL X 1065]

Drawing of gladiatorial combat relief which Fiorelli says is from the Tomb of Cn Clovatius.

See Fiorelli Descrizione p. 401, p. 419.

 

3. Tomb with relief of gladiatorial combats

"From still another tomb are reliefs with gladiatorial combats, now in Naples [Archaeological] Museum"

See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. p. 430-1.
