    Considering the place and time, when the olde streets were a virtual compost heap.

      probably blocks the smell pretty effectively.  If it's airtight then no particulate matter that causes smell will waft out.  And while we're at it - being airtight would also slow down decomposition because the only microscopic critters that eat dead bodies that would get in would be whatever was already on the bodies and clothes when they were encased.
