The tomb number 54 seen from east-northeast.


This is the first tomb that we met on entering the complex. It looks like a small boulder burial, a big and half-rounded capstone stands on a small group of small upright stones.
At the end of 19th century, during some excavations, a large number of human bones were found in its chamber, along with four kinds of shellfish and some quartz fragments.
