Stylos Domed Tomb
(4 votes)

South of Aptera we meet the domed tomb of Stylos that came to light in 1961 (looted) by the archaeologists N. Platon, and K. Davaras. This monumental tomb was of a local lord and has a circular stone chamber and long, road corridor (20,80 m long).

The relieving triangle above the entrance hosted 12 cups of the Hellenistic period, a fact that confirms that ceremonies took place there. Such Hellenistic pottery was also found in the corridor.
