Cupella in Christian archeology, is a small sepulchral recess for children, in the catacombs. At present, we have only one instance of its use, which is given by Marchi (Monumenti Primit. page 114). The inscription upon it records the burial of her two children, Secundina and Laurentius, by their mother Secunda. The solecisms in grammar and orthography of which it is full show that Secunda was a person of humble rank. The stone is preserved in the Museum Kircherianum.
