The menorah on this tomb is located just above and to the left of the green plant.  Note the seven branches.  The menorah is standing on a tripod base (partially visible).

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.
