This well preserved Roman mausoleum was a family burial vault used in the 4th century. The building has a temple-like façade. Inside are the remains of two sarcophagi. The entrance would have been sealed with a stone door at the time of usage as a burial chamber.
A mihrab was added in the southern wall during the early Arab period. The site became holy to the Muslims who called it “Makam Nebe Yihya”; this explains why the building was not destroyed
A columbarium was added in a side room; the pigeons raised there may have been used for food or for pagan rites. The columbarium was entered by ladder from an entrance high in the eastern wall
