Chest tomb. Late C17. Limestone. Narrow rectangular plan. A
large flat slab to the top has a scroll frieze below the
entablature, and articulated by Tuscan half-columns to each
elevation; the long sides also have a central pilaster
articulating wide shields with worn cherubs' heads in the
lower corners of the panels. The narrow ends have a skull and
crossbones to the south-facing panel and a skull over a worn
cartouche to the north. An interesting classical design.
