Photographer's Note

Ah yes! This is literally the mansion-of-the-younger-sister-of-the-wet-nurse. Presumably, the sister had suckled a VIB - Very Important Baby or she would not have been entitled to a mansion. Who the baby was is not known, however. But outsourcing of nursing was common, especially among VIP mothers who wished to regain their figures after childbirth or failed to produce sufficient milk. The monument is really a mausoleum.
