Triclinium

The Triclinium (which in Latin means “three benches”) below the Obelisk Tomb has a chamber for holding annual banquets in honour of the dead. Its highly weathered facade is crowned by a “broken” pediment, a triangular element without the central part, characteristic for Nabatean architecture.
