VGK Pompeii. 1910. Tomb of Arellia Tertulla, daughter of Numerius and wife of Veius Fronto.
In the centre was a plinth which had two marble plaques. 
According to NdS 1910, two fragments of a marble plaque were found separately behind the tombs, the right part on 16th November 1908 and the left part on 25th February 1909. 
They probably fitted in the right hand of the two recesses on the tomb.
One plaque was found in two fragments and had a Latin inscription. It read -

..ELLIAE N F TERTVLLAE
VEI FRONTONIS; HVIC DECVRION
LOCVM SEPVLTVRAE POST MORTEM
DEDERVNT ET FVNVS EX P. P.
DECRE.

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1910, p. 405.

According to La Rocca, de Vos and de Vos, this expands to 

[Ar]elliae N(umeri) f(iliae) Tertullae
Vei Frontonis; huic Decurion(es)
locum sepulturae post mortem
dederunt et funus ex p(ecunia) p(ropria)
decre(verunt).

See La Rocca, de Vos, de Vos, 1981. Guida Archeologica di Pompei; II Edizione. Milano: Arnoldo Mondadori Editore.  (p. 281).

According to Cooley this translates as –

To [Ar]ellia Tertulla, daughter of Numerius, wife of Veius Fronto. To her the town council gave a burial place after her death and decreed a funeral at public expense.

Arellia Tertulla was probably the wife of Marcus Stlaborius Veius Fronto, a prominent magistrate, who was quinquennial in AD 25/6.
