A second tunnel, hidden behind a later wall, was dug through the rock scarp farther north of the other tunnel. This tunnel is also 6 feet high and leads back 18 feet to an almost-identical 11-foot-high burial chamber that measures 16 feet by 19 feet. This was probably the first of the two tombs to be constructed: It was dug from above and therefore must have been dug no later than the time the palace was constructed. This tomb was then covered with stone slabs to form a roof, and the palace was built over it.
