Hypogeum of the Volumni – An Etruscan tomb of the ‘Gens Volumnia’

0
The Hypogeum of the Volumes is an Etruscan hypogeal tomb belonging to the 'Gens Volumnia'. The Hypogeum is part of the Palazzone Necropolis, which houses approximately two hundred tombs and was unused from the first century onwards, only to be discovered during work on the redevelopment of an adjacent road. The tomb is reached through a stepped corridor, completed in modern times, which gives direct access to the structure consisting of a vestibule, four side chambers and three central ones. The date of the tomb is uncertain, but it is thought to date from around the 3rd century BC.
