This tomb by the Appian Way, of a patrician woman, one of several called Cecilia Metella, was later transformed into a fortress. The obscure Caecilia Metella (Caecilia Metella Cretica) of this tomb was a daughter-in-law of Crassus (of Spartacan rebellion fame) and the mother of Marcus Licinius Crassus Dives.
