It seems that excavations at the Eastern Cemetery of Pella have been carried out between October 2014 and December 2015, examining nineteen cist graves and other tile-roofed graves.
One of these tombs is remarkable because, beside the usual antechamber and main chamber, it also has two side chambers situated on either side of the ante-chamber. The vaulted roof of the main chamber has collapsed but the vaults of the side rooms have survived in excellent condition. The walls of the main chamber still stand to a height of 2.5 meters, and one of the side chambers still contained the stone pedestal on which the deceased was placed. The door to the ante-chamber must have been a wooden one, measuring 2.78x1.30 meters.
As so often, this tomb has been looted in antiquity, but some pottery, lamps and figurines have been recovered, enabling to date the tomb to the first half of the 3rd century BC.
The tomb’s façade has not been studied yet but looks rather promising as the debris suggests that it may have been quite a monumental construction crowned with a pediment.
