The aim of this paper is to analyze some aspects related to the ritual and the set-composition of a group of grave from the Roman necropolis of Oderzo. First of all, the external markers of the graves are analyzed: they are tiles, amphorae, small mounds. Then we describe the libation ducts identified during the excavations, made by amphora necks. A specific ritual is underlined in some cremation graves of the 1st century AD. They have miniaturist jars with their own lid made by common ceramic, which lay down almost always in pairs, outside the ossuary in common ceramic too, as a secondary offer. These little jars seem to characterize infant burials, probably female.
