The Painted Tombs

This Tomb was discovered in 1960 and constitutes an example of the Hellenistic period with two levels or floors and a vestibule. On the first floor there is a chamber furnished with benches which was utilized for religious ceremonies. By descending a narrow, steep staircase, two other chambers can be reached where the deposition took place. On the walls of the upper chamber, known as the vestibule, two fake doors were carved on either side of which is depicted the figure of Charon, the menacing Etruscan demon of the underworld who accompanied the souls to the after-life.

Dated: 1st half of the 3rd century B.C.
