The mosaic is made up of pebbles colored white, black, gray, blue, red and yellow.
Abduction of Persephone
More digging revealed a third figure: Persephone. It's clear that this scene shows the goddess being taken into the underworld by Hades.
Missing Head Found
The missing head of one of the sphinxes was discovered in the fourth chamber of the tomb. The marble head is quite intact (besides its broken nose).
The marble statue's wavy hair falls on its left side and has faint traces of paint.
In a breakthrough find, the excavators uncovered pieces of bones inside a vault in the third chamber of the tomb in November. There were also fragments of glass (likely from decorations on the coffin) and metal nails scattered around the skeletal remains.
This diagram shows the location of the vault. Scientists will analyze the bone fragments to see if they can glean any information about who was buried in the tomb.
