PreviousUpNext The Tomb with Tetrastyle Prostyle Facade

This tomb is situated north of the 'heroon' and the other three tombs of the Great Tumulus of which it is a part. It is the only 'Macedonian tomb' to have a free standing frontal colonnade, and may be an earlier architectural version of the 'Macedonian tomb'. The greater part of its stonework has been stolen; the only remains are some parts of the stylobate (base of a row of columns) and columns, and a few slabs of its walls.
