Tomb No 3 of the Tombs of the Kings archaeological site in Cyprus. It had a peristyle atrium surrounded on all sides by Doric columns and topped by a frieze of triglyphs and metopes.
This fascinating archaeological site contains a set of remarkable underground tombs used by the residents of Nea Pafos during the Hellenistic and Roman periods (from the 3rd century BCE to the 3rd century CE).
