Eastern tombs date again to Ptolemaic times



Most tombs were locked, I presume due to flooding from heavy rain. The wall paintings are faded out, you cannot see something actually.
The tomb lies to the south of the esplanade leading to the palace of “Ras el-Tin” and consists of five tombs, all relationship from the primary half of the 3rd century. The first and most exceptional of the tombs is reached by way of a vaulted stairway hewn out of the rock, leading down into a square courtyard which is open to the sky and provides access to two tombs.
The vaulted ceiling of the funeral chamber is embellished with geometric designs paying homage to the coated ceiling in certain ancient villas. The funeral motifs are an instance of the mixed affect of Greek artwork and the normal forms of Egyptian arts.were minimize out of native limestone.
Come to Alexandria, and near the city center, you will find taxis that will take you next to the Ras El Tin Palace to see this archaeological site.
