Group of Tholoi

Across the road from the principal tomb lie a group of seven other excavated tholoi, numbered 1 to 6 and 10. Now completely obscured by at least ten years of overgrowth, their location was known by earlier field trips to this site.

An entrance stone to Tholus 6
looking east.

The shallow depression of the
 passage of Tholus 1, 
or Tholus 10

The crypt of Tholus 10,
or Tholus 1.

It is difficult to distinguish where one
is in a thicket of dense prickly bushes 
and trees, with no reference outside 
the area!
