tomb of Hilarus Fuscus

The Tomb of Hilarus Fuscus is a funerary monument, located on the Appia Antica near Rome. The inscription bearing the name of the deceased (Latin: Hilarus Fuscus or Hilarius Fuscus) on the masonry disappeared in the period between 1978 and 1998. The architecture of the tomb and the analysis of figures (particularly the hairstyle of the women) suggests the tomb was built at end of the Republican period, the beginning of the Imperial age (circa 30 BC).

The tomb is mentioned in the Émile Zola novel Roma published in 1896.
