In the center of the first mound of the western cemetery of Pella, the excavations brought to light the violated tomb VI, which is 8.50 m long, 4.80 m wide and 4.80 m high. Its non-architectural facade, facing south, is covered with mortar. A long, 2m wide sloping road leads to the entrance of the tomb, which was covered with a horizontal wooden roof.
In the burial chamber of the tomb, 3 rectangular marble sarcophagi were found, where 2 male warriors and a female were buried. The slabs of the sarcophagi come from two monumental marble sepulchral naisks of the end of the 4th century BC. similar to those found in Attica. From the offerings that escaped the collection, it is estimated that the tomb was built in the decade 280/70 BC.
