Plan of tombs located outside the Pompeii city walls, after Stefani 1998, updated for later finds.

See Pompei Oltre la vita, SAP Exhibition, 1998, p. 90.

Each tomb area has a specific page on our site with information and photographs.

If your screen is large enough (more than 853px wide) press the tomb letter you want on the plan to see the pictures.

If you are on a smaller screen such as a phone or tablet you can use the links below to see the pictures.

Note: The research by Alison Emmerson, 2010, suggests slightly differing locations for some tombs around Porta Stabia. See Necropoli di Porta Stabia page.
