The two-chamber Macedonian Tomb of the Palmettes has a temple-shaped fa?ade of the Ionic order, a pediment and impressive palmettes. A painted depiction of the deceased and his wife is preserved on the pediment, while the ceiling of the antechamber is decorated with colourful palmettes painted in a blue surface. This monument is truly unique, as the painted compositions are exceptionally preserved and the colours retain their initial brightness almost intact.
