The Octagonal Mausoleum, which has nowadays been reduced to remains of the lower discovered in 1941, dates back to the 1st century. Its base contains three steps and is characterized by a circular shape. The lower part is almost 1.5 meters high, and it is believed that the entire mausoleum had a height of about 9.2 meters. The lower part was made with the help of the ancient isodomum technique consisting of properly carved stone blocks, while the bottom is adorned with curved and flat wood strips. Inside, there was a wreath which separated the upper and central part of the mausoleum. The mausoleum was decorated with a frieze and architrave depicting griffins, sphinxes, caraway wreath and Anthemius decorations. It is assumed that in the central part of the mausoleum a burial chamber was also located.
