HGW16 Pompeii. Herculaneum Gate West Side. Unfinished grave?

Tomb of Tyche, slave of Julia Augusta. Tomb of Aulus Umbricius Scaurus son of Aulus?

(Eschebach West 16, Kockel Süd 16).

 

HGW16 Pompeii. May 2006. Looking west. According to Mau the tomb was unfinished at the time of the eruption. Part of the marble veneering had not yet been added and the walls of the sepulchral chamber were in the rough. There were also no urns in any of the five niches.
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 418).
