TOMB 29Tek

Tomb 29 (unfortunately closed for the public) is, due
to its architecture, decoration, reliefs and inscriptions
one of the most interesting tombs in this necropolis.
Originally the tomb was built with only one burial
chamber and a walled-in courtyard. Later on the yard
was extended to create space for a second burial
chamber with a second floor, probably for a solarium.
The second floor could be reached by a staircase.
Tomb 29 is detached on three sides and shares its wall on the north side partly with tomb 30.
Although rather far located from the main road, the
entrance of the tomb is still facing the Via Severiana,
because the field in front of the grave remained
unoccupied.
