This monument which is within the Salamis Necropolis
is thought to have been erected in the name of Nikokreon,
the last king of Salamis.
It is stated that Nikokreon chose to commit suicide rather
than surrender to Ptolemaios. Before killing himself, he killed
his wife and family, and set fire to the palace.
In the middle of the platform that can be reached by climbing
a set of echeloned steps, there is a kiln in which iron bars
and statues made of stone and clay belonging to that era were
found. The statues made of half baked clay have the characteristics
of the late Classical Greek sculpture.
