Around the perimeter of the site (which also includes an ongoing excavation of a Roman Road, the remains of extensive Roman Baths, and the Villa of the Birds) contains a variety of statuary, including these -- which look like bathtubs but are really sarcophagi -- and some statues brought from the harbor, where they are excavating a Temple of Isis.
