A view of the 9 mysterious circular openings on the tomb of Marcus Vergilius Eurysaces. Eurysaces was a baker, and these openings have been interpreted as representing openings in baking ovens or vats in which grain/flour was stored. Below them is a Latin Inscription naming Eurysaces and his wife and above them is a relief, that goes around the tomb, illustrating steps in the baking process!
Eurysaces was a freed slave who started a bakery and became very rich!
