Petra - Obelisk Tomb and Bab Al-Siq Triclinium

The Obelisk Tomb takes its name from the four Obelisks which decorate its upper storey. The Obelisk was a common Nabataean funerary symbol and clearly demonstrates Egyptian influence. An inscription in both Greek and Nabataean to be found opposite it, refers to a family tomb built by Abdmank which may well be the Obelisk tomb itself. The Bab Al-Siq Triclinium, constructed at a later date, is the first of approx. 100 similar monuments to be found throughout the site.
