The kerb is all that remains of this tomb. Here it's seen from the southeast (140°).


What remains of this passage tomb is the ring of the kerb stones and a low mound inside them. The tomb itself has disappeared, allegedly destroyed like many others at this complex. Some small stones are visible inside the kerb ring. The diameter of the kerb is about 9.50 metres.
The radiocarbon analysis gave a result of 4200 BC.
