Rock-cut entrance about same width as pit to permit entrance of stone coffin, but built up with masonry after entrance of coffin to form narrow entrance passage. Inside, two chambers. Entrance to second chamber like entrance from pit to first chamber. In second chamber granite (red) coffin upset, lying on side, on eastern side of chamber. Lid on edge just west of coffin.
