TOMB 86 Tek

click to enlarge photographOriginally detached, tomb 86 consisted of two burial chambers above each other. One of them is partly subterranean. The grave was facing the Via Severiana.
The upper burial chamber that could be reached by a staircase of four steps, had two small windows in the back-wall to illuminate the room a little bit.
On the outside corners are square brick columns with
pumice rosettes of lotus flowers in top.
The entrance is located in the middle of the façade.
The upper burial chamber has been built for interring
urns only and has large central niches flanked by small,
semi-circular niches.
The floor, now disappeared, must have been covered by black and white mosaic.
