HGW04a Pompeii. 1836 plan by De Jorio. According to De Jorio the top of the monument was entirely ruined.  On it were found pieces of columns which held up a circular cornice.  There were 6 statues, three of men, each in a toga and three of women, each wearing a pallium (Greek cloak). In the centre rose a square structure that would hold the main urn. 
There were 11 niches in the tomb. Eleven cippi were found outside at c, d and f. See De Jorio, A., 1836. Guida di Pompei.  Napoli: Fibreno. (pl. II).
