Roman Soldier's Tomb

Although predominently of Nabatean style it is named as Roman because of the stone bust wearing Roman breast armour.

circa 100 CE

The facade of the Roman Soldier Tomb is similar to the Urn Tomb, including the disk decoration on its small frieze. Higher up the facade, three niches are distributed between the four columns on the front of the monument. Each niche contains a male figure, dressed in military style, hence the name.
