Looking northwest at Tomb 163d that is located in the necropolis of Hierapolis.  This tomb dates to the first century A.D.

This tomb belonged to a Jewish family.  Below the burial benches the remains of 31 individuals were found along with burial objects.

A menorah (seven branch candle) is engraved on the lower portion of the tomb.
