Corinthian tomb in Petra

The structure is situated following the Silk Vault, with its origins tracing back to approximately 40-70 AD. Measuring 27-55 meters in width and 28 meters in height, the facade bears resemblance to the Treasury’s facade, particularly in the upper section. However, it is less ornate and lacks sculptures, unlike the Treasury. In front and beside the facade, there are remnants of four water basins, which were utilized for purification rituals in Nabataean religious practices. Internally, the tomb comprises four rooms, three of which are square-shaped and located on the left side. The main room houses graves positioned behind the right half of the facade, with dimensions of around 13 meters.
