In this paper, we report on a new tomb which was discovered on the coast of Syria, including the objects found within, such as, the sarcophagus and the entire funerary ensemble. The analysis of the construction system, primarily through drawings made in situ by the excavation team is considered one of most effective approaches to understand the techniques involved in this hypogeal tomb found on the Phoenician coast of Syria. A series of chronological data are provided concerning the stylistic features of the tomb, with special mention of past looting. The study concludes with an overall assessment of the tomb and its contents.
