the tomb of Ser. Sulpicius Galba, consul in 144 or, more probably, 108 B.C., in the district belonging to the family between the south-west side of the Aventine and the Tiber, where the HORREA GALBAE (q.v.) were afterwards built. The tomb, a simple rectangular structure of tufa with a cornice of peperino, was found in 1885 in the Via Giovanni Branca, just north of the later buildings of the horrea and perhaps enclosed within them, on the south side of an ancient road (BC 1885, 165-166; NS 1885, 527; Mitt. 1886, 62, 71 HJ 175). It is now in the Museo Municipale (Antiquario) on the Caelian; see CIL i². 695 =vi. 31617.
