This circular mausoleum at Carsulae (Italy) dates to the 1st century CE. It was built by cutting into a limestone crag and constructing a terrace wall in limestone opus quadratum. The tomb likely belonged to the Furia family. An inscription plaque, whose curve matches the mausoleum, records a dedication to the Gens Furia.
