View of one of the monumental free standing tombs in the necropolis of Hierapolis.  The tomb was designed in such a way so as to represent a temple or a house.

Note the doorway: threshold, doorposts, and lintel.  Also note, the undecorated freeze and the gabled roof with a circular shield in the pediment.

For a view of the inscription that is just to the left of the lintel of the doorway Click Here .
