  The Palace Monument
by RblWthACoz

A huge five story facade with five doorways on the first level. On the second level stand 18 columns that support the third story.The 4th and 5th stories are decorated with short pilasters. This monument probably functioned as a banqueting area for funerary ceremonies.

Directions: to the right of the Tomb of Sextius Florentinius and the left of the Royal Tombs
