Discovered in 1985 during maintenance work on the municipal aqueduct, the tomb is composed of a large chamber with a double-pitched roof and decorated by a continuous frieze running along the length of the walls.
On the left-hand wall the deceased is depicted on a chariot drawn by a pair of horses, with two dancers behind it and a figure holding a leafy branch and two musicians in front. At the head of the cortège there is a young, naked cupbearer near a sumptuously laid table leading to the banquet scene depicted on the far wall, which includes four pairs of all-male guests except for the couple in the middle representing the owner of the tomb and his wife.
The fresco on the right-hand wall presents a view of the afterlife. From left to right: Charon, the ferryman of souls, with a long oar on a red boat, followed by two deceased people, a cloaked woman and a young man, who are welcomed by three other figures: a woman preceded by a blue-fleshed demon and followed by a young, brown-skinned, winged demon grabbing at her waist.
The scene culminates in a hideous blue demon with bearded snakes wrapped around his arms, sitting on a rock, and one last black-skinned, winged demon with a blood-stained mouth clawing at the newcomers. This is the oldest afterworld scene in Tarquinian funerary painting.
Dated: late 5th century B.C.
