View of the upper portion of the eastern wall of the Tomb of Annas, the High Priest (AD 5–16).
At the very top of the image note a small portion of the finely carved rosette pattern!! AND, in the upper left portion of the ceiling the outline of a large carved acanthus leaf (there was one in each of the corners of the ceiling within this tomb.
On this wall is a "chimney" that leads to the outside. It is not certain if this is part of the original tomb design, or a later addition when monks were living in the tomb.
