TOMB 89 Tek

Tomb 89 was created by closing the open space between tomb 88 and tomb 90, a space
originally meant as a passageway to the sea.
Actually it is an enclosure in which three burial chambers have been built
and beside it some smaller graves. Also the already mentioned oven
and well were included in the new tomb.
The entrance is on the east side. (the Via Severiana).
Probably the closing of the open space happened at the same time
as the building of the burial chamber
right next to the entrance (89B).
Inside this burial chamber was
a series of small niches painted with
red flowers on a white background.
In later time formae have been built under the floor.
