The tomb number 55 has only a few kerb stones and a very low mound remaining. Seen from the southeast.


All that remains of this tomb is an uncomplete kerb ring. It seems that most of the stones of this tomb had been removed during the excavations at the end of the 19th century, when a large amount of human bones and elaborated stone beads were found.
Radiocarbon analyses revealed that this tomb was already in use in 3800 BC.
