Hierapolis museum sarcophagus

view map

This is a scan from a slide that I took at an earlier visit.

This type of sarcophagus one can see a lot, I suppose the body was shoved in from (head first) through the large hole, with the small hole to take a last look at the deceased. Good craftsmanship to bake such a large object from clay.

other sizes: small medium large original
