According to Berry, in 1911 this necropolis was found about 500m from the Stabian Gate. 
"It is thought the site was the burial ground of one particularly extended family, the Epidii. 
There were 44 inhumation burials dating from the 4th to 2nd centuries BC, that is to before the Roman Period. 
These burials were simple and often contained grave goods such as coins and jewellery. 
The later Roman burials on this site, 119 in total, were all cremations. 
This served to emphasise the changes that occurred in all areas of life - not just in politics and public building - after the Romans founded their colony at Pompeii. 
Old local families, such as the Epidii, came to adopt the Roman funerary practices rather than hold on to their own traditions."
See Berry, J., 2007. The Complete Pompeii. London, Thames & Hudson, (p.93-4)
According to Stefani, rather inaccurate data provided by Della Corte led to an incorrect location that more careful investigations have finally been able to correct.
It's actually located in an area immediately south of Porta Nocera, adjoining the road from the gate out to the Sarno valley, and very close to the shrine of Fondo Iozzino.

Pompeii Fondo Azzolini. Tomb 66: Marcus Epidius Dioscourus.

The tomb consisted of a brick podium 1.28m. wide and 1.15m deep and elevated 0.40m from the ground, closed at the bottom and covered by a vault 1.10m high, which was crowned by a pediment resting on a simple moulded cornice. Over the white stucco coating the inner surface and the facade, facing west, were the following decorations.

 

Façade.

The plinth was painted with three marble faces (yellow-red), the one in the middle of the podium and the other side on piers; from each of the latter sprang a laurel plant with seven to eight branches, reaching up to the end of the cornice; on the front, a green garland attached to a nail (pictorially espressed) and falling in two short symmetrical drops.

 

Interior walls.

Simple dark-red or green bands, and yellow frames, each of the three sides was divided into rectangles horizontally arranged with a vertical square in the middle; in the lunette at the back was painted a peacock with tail elevated.

 

The vault

This was divided into a chequerboard, formed 49 squares (7 x 7) arranged in alternating series (dark red, yellow, light red) according to the diagonal, and bearing at the centre of each a stylized green flower. Leaning against the centre of the rear wall stood the marble stele of M. Epidio Dioscoro, on the right of which emerged in the podium the tube for libations. This consisted of, in the first section, a half, strong, terracotta suspensurae, height 0.50 m., conical body, walled in the foundations, and, in the second section, two adjacent roof tiles, height 0.55 m, which reached the six tiles covering the remains of the pyre. The latter were deposited over a bed of 1.45m X 0.60 m, at a depth of 1.50 m from the surface of the podium. Below the peacock painting an inscription was drawn in charcoal:

 

L AVROBPM

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1916, p. 300-1.

 

Simple chamber tomb. Single burial. Burial of a freeborn person.

The ashes were spread in the bottom of a rectangular pit, and protected with a double row of tiles forming a roof.

In the graves 13, 66, 104a, 108 and 109 the jars were in the subsoil covered with a solid masonry ballast, that guaranteed it permanently from the danger of possible dispersion, which could occur if a later deposit happened at that same point.
