Sarcophagi of the

The Merolli-FATA collection is mostly made up by funerary material, mainly sepulchral inscriptions and fragments of sarcophagi. Some evidence suggests that in many cases they were unearthed directly in the suburban agricultural land that the Merollis owned near the most important consular roads, such as the Appian Way, along which, in Roman times, stretched vast burial areas.
