Location in Alexandria
The first underground is the largest part of the catacombs. It contains a room with three sarcophagi, the middle one with reliefs about the mummification process. The walls of this room are decorated with a Roman Emperor with a crown on his head and the goddess Isis protecting the dead. The third underground has chambers and rooms. Most of the tombs were located in this basement.
