SGD and SGH Pompeii. Tombs at Stabian Gate or Porta Stabia.

SGD Schola Tomb of Marcus Tullius. SGH Enclosure at rear.

Excavated 1888 to 1890.

 

Just outside the Porta di Stabia a pair of tufa schola tombs came to light in 1888-90.

The one, closest to the gate, is identified by a pair of lava cippi, one to either side, as the tomb of M. Tullius, given by decree of the decuriones.

M. Tullius appears to have been the man who built the Aedes For­tunae Augustae, three times duovir and tribunus militum a populo.

Both tombs were no longer respected after A.D. 62 but were buried under dumps of debris from the earthquake.

According to L. Richardson Jr., the schola of Tullius has remains of a rectangular base behind the mid­point that probably carried another inscription, and it is the later of the two, built when the pomerial strip was no longer needed.

See Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1889, 280; 1890, 329-331; 1891, 273-274.

SGH Pompeii. May 2006. According to Mau: The memorial tablet belonging to the monument nearest the gate has disappeared, but two boundary stones at the corners of the lot bear the Latin inscription : 
M. Tullio M. f. ex D(ecurionem) D(ecreto)
'To Marcus Tullius son of Marcus, in accordance with a vote of the city council.' The Tullius named was perhaps the builder of the temple of Fortuna Augusta. See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.422-3, p.126). The Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) has the entry as 
M(arco) Tullio / M(arci) f(ilio) / ex d(ecreto) d(ecurionum) [EE-08-01, 00330 = EE-08-01, 00857d]
