A tombstone dedicated to Lartidia Recepta who died at the age of 27 is carved into the rock. The monument was dedicated by the patron Gaius Lartidius Crispus, Centurion of the VIII volunteer cohort. Lartidia was his slave, so after she was freed she took the nomen of her patron Lartidius, while her original nomen was Recepta.
