T7 Pompeii. July 2011. Walls containing carved inscriptions near Tower VII. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer. According to Cooley, a series of inscriptions (CIL X 8349 to 8361) were found between the Porta Sarno and the Porta Nola. These appear to be epitaphs and are inscribed directly on the city walls, rather than on separate tombstones. Nearby were found 38 cinerary urns containing cremations. “They perhaps represent the burials of the poorer inhabitants of Pompeii”.
