NGI Pompeii. Porta Nola Tombs. Tomb garden or bustum?

 

NGI Pompeii. May 2006. Small rectangular area between tomb of M. Obellius Firmus and tomb of Aesquillia Polla. According to Spano, this could have been a tomb garden, but this was not conclusive. See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p. 393. Jashemski quotes Pozzi as believing it could be a bustum, A place for burning funeral pyres. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p. 255-6, no. 526).
