About 150m from Porta Stabia, a short distance from Fondo Santilli, and thirty years after that excavation, during work on extending the house of il sig. cav. dott. Salvatore Squillante on Via Provinciale, a Samnite tomb was discovered.

It was at a depth of 1.30m and consisted of slabs of Sarno limestone, oriented north- west to south-east.

It was not explored, due to unstable ground and fear of a collapse.

In the surrounding soil several objects were found including a stamnos, a lekythos, fragments of an amphora with palm motifs on a black background, part of a large bowl, and an olpe 0.08m high.

 

In the immediate vicinity were two roman cremations marked by two lava columellae which had no inscriptions.

One of the urns was a small terracotta dolia with three points emerging on the shoulder and containing burnt bones along with four clay ungentari.
