The necropolis area is composed by more than 200 funerary buildings dating back between I and IV century A.d. The necropoli’s graves are composed by a single room or by two floors, often alongside their walls it’s possible to observe inscriptions with the owner’s name, the grave’s dimensions, the rules of use of the sepulchre and the owner’s will. On the sepulchre’s sides used to be depicted the activities that the deceased were known for, such as their job, their skills or their life’s deeds.
