Latial Phase IVB is characterised by a marked decrease in the number of burials, which are set within a framework of greater austerity compared to Phase IVA. For example, there are 130 known funerary contexts in the necropolis of Castel di Decima for Phase IVA but only ten for Phase IVB. Similarly, the necropolis of Riserva del Truglio contains twenty-seven IVA tombs but only three for Phase IVB, while the ninety-five tombs from the oppidum of Acqua Acetosa Laurentina thus far identified belong entirely to Phase IVA. Some rock-cut chamber tombs of this phase are attested in Rome by Esquiline tomb 125, as well as others at Crustumerium, Torrino and Gabii.
