The catacomb of Saint Catherine presents the interesting characteristic of a “mixed cemetery” in the sense that some epigraphs reveal all the characteristics of a profession of “pagan” faith, while other texts denote a surely Christian extraction.

The catacomb, constituted by two cemetery nuclei, appears to have already originated in the third century and proposes a sepulchral typology very similar to the one found in the Roman catacombs with multiple arcosolia, loculi and floor formae.
