Paphos, Tombs of the Kings

Description:
The tomb is partly overground and can be entered through a rectangular doorlike entrance. It is a rock cut chamber tomb with two small loculi reserved for child burials and five loculi for adults. The interior surface of the tomb was originally plastered and painted. Remains of the plastering are visible around most of the loculi. The tomb was opened many years ago.
