Pompeii Porta Nocera Tomb 18EN. This tomb had no finds and no columelle to suggest a name. According to De Caro, the absence of columelle cast doubt on its function as a tomb. It may be a ustrinum (site of funeral pyre) or a tomb not yet used. See D’Ambrosio, A. and De Caro, S., 1983. Un Impegno per Pompei: Fotopiano e documentazione della Necropoli di Porta Nocera. Milano: Touring Club Italiano.  (18EN).
