The tomb is named after the Superintendent Renato Bartoccini.
The tomb consists of a central chamber with three rooms opening out from it, all three with double-pitched roofs. The roof ridge beam of the central chamber is decorated with painted rosettes and discs while the sloping pitches present a checked motif.
A banquet scene is depicted in the pediment on the far wall, with two male couples surrounded by menservants and handmaidens. In the pediments of the side rooms there are depictions of animal fights while bands of pomegranates and lotus buds decorate the walls.
This tomb is the largest painted hypogeum – underground burial chamber – of the archaic period. The central room was marred with late-Gothic Christian graffiti, a testament to the fact that the tomb was already well-known and accessible in the remote past.
