TOMB 72 Tek

click to enlarge photographThe backside of tomb 72 borders on the front side of both tomb 75 and 54. Only the entrances of the two last tombs have been left free.
The grave has been built above older graves and therefore lies a little bit higher than the surrounding tombs. These older tombs, from the time of Trajan, are destroyed for the greater part. The burial chamber can be reached via three steps.

Inside the burial chamber we see an organisation for
a mixed form of burial. However, the bigger part is equipped for inhumation. Alongside the walls we find a double row of arcosolia and above a few small niches to keep the urns for the ashes.
