In Palatitsia, near Vergina, west of the small settlement, a cluster of four Macedonian tombs has been excavated. These are the so-called Heuzey grave and the three graves that were discovered on the Bella brothers' plot.
On the property of the Bella brothers near the small settlement of Palatitsia, three violated Macedonian graves were discovered which were covered with a low mound.
These three monuments dating back to the 3rd c. BC, they are a valuable set in the series of monumental Macedonian tombs that helps to better understand their typology.
The largest of the three, the two-chamber tomb A, has a built road and an architecturally designed facade. A peculiarity is the housing of the vestibule with a horizontal ceiling and a valuable find is the stone bed-sarcophagus of the chamber.
The care in construction characterizes the single-chamber tomb B, which has a simple facade and a marble throne inside. The facade is decorated with a three-dimensional written representation.
Only a small pediment is formed on the facade of the small and modest tomb C, which has a huge sarcophagus inside.
