In addition, archaeologists and students will be able to visit the tombs through a staircase, which will be built in the building’s basement. The basement will house mostly stores and offices. Furthermore, the building will be equipped with proper and adequate lighting and air-condition means.
Tomb I is considered to be the most important, due to its impressive entrance and its plaster, but also due to the staircase of six steps, that leads to its interior, where a grave stele is to be seen.
Shafts and wells, along with other tombs (one of them dating from the Archaic period) have also been located in the plot. However, they are not well-preserved.
