Antiquarium di via Donota (Antiquarium in Donota Street), Trieste
One construction was built on several levels on the hillside. It was located outside the Theatre and the city walls. It certainly was a residence in the first century AD. The walls have frescoes and plaster decorations. Fine dinnerware uncovered indicates the residents had wealth. By the mid-second century, the house was buried.
An enclosure built around the area was used as a cemetery. Tombs and coffins were found along with urns, large enough to hold children's bodies. One room is devoted to items found while uncovering the house (Domus), the burials, and a dwelling near the Barbacan Square and the Arch of Riccardo.
