The Obelisk Tomb

This actually a funereal duplex. The Obelisk Tomb is the structure on top, with the four obelisks probably representing four of the family members buried there. The lower structure, the Bab as-Siq Triclinium, was built at the same time (mid-first century AD), and was used for ritual banquets honoring the dead.
