Pompeii Porta Nocera Tomb 12EN. May 2006. Tomb of L. Hadonina? Eschebach identified this as the tomb of L. Hadonina. D’Ambrosio believes this is probably a confusion with the Aninia Didime of tomb 8EN. Three Columelle without inscriptions were found in situ in the niche. In the absence of any inscriptions or documentation of epigraphy the tomb cannot be identified. See D’Ambrosio, A. and De Caro, S., 1983.
