Description:   Mycenaean Tomb to NW of Pier 19 (Burial 7).
The chamber was roughly square in shape (2.70m wide by 2.10m deep), oriented northeast to southwest across in transverse axis. The entrance was at the northwest side where a row of sizable fieldstones rested on the floor of the tomb and indicated the lowest course of the original blocking wall of the doorway (0.80m wide). At the inner northeast corner of the chamber the side wall began to arch over at a height of about 0.60m above the floor. Despite the disturbance of the area, the burial layer was remarkably well preserved, with the remains of four interments and their offerings
