This is a large tomb built by the Roman Emperor Augustus in 28 BC in the form of a stone ring covered by an earth mound. A brick wall, 87 meters in diameter, carried an earth mound covered with cypresses. It is on top of the hill stood the bronze monument of the emperor. The building was 44 meters high. On the beginning of the alley which was leading to the tomb were two Egyptian obelisks. Until 1936 concerts were performed in this building. Excavations began in 1926 and all later additions were removed from the building.
