The Ariston family may have been related to the Eros family from Cave 2, as several members of the Eros family were also buried in Cave 3. Ossuaries bearing the name Eros were located in room 3-D. However, since room 3-D is adjacent to Cave 2, both caves may have originally belonged to the Eros family, who then sold or gave one to the Ariston family. In any event, the two families seem to have had a common origin in the Diaspora and would naturally maintain close contact in their new homeland.
