FPSG Pompeii. Area G South at Fondo Pacifico Tombs.

Inscriptions to Calidia Aucta, Calidia Propolis, Callidia Soteris, M. Decidius Macer M. F., and P. Cluvius Atticus.

 

According to D’Ambrosio and De Caro;

It is a wide area with a niche tomb Ga at the east end and an arch Gb at the west end, but with no clear internal divisions.

It has a continuous line of columella on the south side, without characteristics to indicate boundaries or ownership.

Having no way to split up the area accurately, they have described this as one area.

See D’Ambrosio A. and De Caro S., 1988. Römische Gräberstraßen. München: C. H. Beck. p. 223.
