Robbers' prospect hole and the entrance to the burial.
In 2003 this tumulus was robbed by the "black archeologists". Robbers dug a vertical prospect-hole in the center of the tumulus. As the burial ground was examined, after robbing, we corroborate the primary version of its construction, age and origin.
