Pompeii FP2. 1888 plan of tombs FP1 to FP6 by Mau. Tomb FP2 agrees in detail with the 1886 drawing by Maier. Note the nearness to FP1, the positioning of the two cippi, the ground plan and the balustrade. FP4 does not have the thick rear wall or the balustrade and its niches and cippi are different. See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 431, fig. 246).
