Typical for this area are gravestones in the form of door, symbolizing the entrance to the underworld. A lot of these are on display near the temple. Most of them are from the second century AD and on inscription mainly mention the deceased and the founders of the stone. Symbols indicate who was remembered: eagles, lions, bulls for men for instance.
On the picture: a fragment of a late-Roman sarcophagus, decorated with masks and naked personages carrying garlands of flowers and fruits.
