Facade 846

Siq al-Barid, Jordan


Siq al-Barid, sometimes called "Little Petra," is located about 6-7km north of Petra itself. This mausoleum is perched above a short flight of steps near the entrance of the siq. It consists of a triangular pediment with urn finial resting on two engaged Nabataean horned columns. The mausoleum's entrance is surmounted by an arched pediment, with raised disks in the metopes. The facade is dated 1st century BC - 1st century AD.
