The Painted Tombs

The tomb was dug out in 1962 and consists of a single square chamber with a doubl- pitched roof. The tomb represents a pavilion, a large tent which is set up during the hunt. The fabric of the pavilion painted on the walls is light and transparent so that those inside can see the landscape outside. On the lower portion of the side walls and at the far end of the chamber there is a high protruding shelf upon which grave goods were placed. In the centre of the chamber lies the ‘kline’, or bier, upon which the body of the deceased was lain.

Dated: end of the 6th century B.C.
