Picture of Tomb 81 of North Necropolis. Hierapolis archaeological site near Pamukkale in Turkey.

Tomb 81 (2nd - 3rd centuries AD)
The tomb is built on a high platform that compensates for
difference in level of the land behind it. Inside the
chamber are three sepulchre beds, arranged along the walls, an a very deep ossuary. On the roof slabs, which jut out a long way, are two sarcophagi. Two inscriptions beside the door end the inscription on the slab that closed it (now in the museum ) refer to the successive occupants, including Eutyches Pompeios, who left 100 denari to the association of wool washers for the periodic decoration of
the tomb. .
