Necropolis of Porta Nocera

Right outside Porta Nocera is the necropolis, of considerable importance, with its exedra and aedicula tombs. The funerary building, dating from the Tiberian period (14-37 AD) is architecturally imposing, built by Eumachia, priestess of Venus, for herself and her family members: the exedra stands on a high terrace, with the burial chamber and fence in the back. The structure, in opus caementicium, was covered with Nocera tufa and divided into niches with statues, separated by half columns and crowned with a decorated frieze. The tomb was inserted between two other previously existing aedicula burial sites, from the late Republican period, consisting of a podium supporting the cell containing the statues of the dead.

The Excavation of Pompeii is far from our bed and breakfast only 1 Km.
