Exhumation of the burial area

In addition to the mosaic documented in this campaign we continue with the exhumation of the burial area. Some burials are deposited inside of cover graves with granite slabs and most of them are anthropomorphic graves.

Regarding the room with tessellate tapestry, it seems to be a great stay, but we’ll only be able to observe, during this campaign, only the northern and western boundaries. As we progress through the excavation of the room, it shows the quality of the motifs represented and, above all, we see how the mosaic was originally figurative, not geometric as we thought so far. However, we only preserve a few signs of the central motif, but even that is enough to highly represent the delicacy of its construction.
