Tomb of the Scipios on the via Appia.

The last longitudinal gallery on the right.

Rome, Tomb of the Scipios

Description:
Gallery 1112 (view from the end 12).

On the right  remains of the sarcophagus of Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio Hispanus (H). Parts of the plates of Aniene tufa that bear inscription were changed for copies (originals are in the Vatican Museums); the rest stone parts in situ are authentic.

The designation corresponds to the plan of the Tomb of the Scipios and genealogical tree of the Scipios.
