Military tombstone of Titus Valerius Pudens. The decoration of the slab comprises a pedimented inscription panel. The pediment contains two dolphins flanking a trident. In the field outside the pediment are two raised circles, quartered, and in the space below the inscription panel an axe. Military tombstone of Gaius Saufeius. This massive gravestone has a tenon at the bottom edge, presumably for insertion into some kind of base. It is gabled, having the outline of a pediment and acroteria. Three rosettes decorate the field above the rectangular inscription panel; the uppermost is smaller than the other two which measure 0.16 m. They each have six petals which are modelled in low relief against the recessed background of the containing circle.
