The entrance and main room of the tomb are similar to the middle-sized vault tombs of the Early Mycenaean period. Four large pits were excavated to the floor of the grave chamber and the foundation was covered with large stones. This feature also reflects the Early Mycenaean period vault graves.

According to the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the use of the monument continued until the Late Mycenaean Period (1400-1200 BC). However, when the dating was done on the basis of dates, the dates went back further than the Early Mycenaean.

During the Mycenaean period, the excavation revealed that a portion of the tombstone collapsed after the use of the tomb. The collapsed roof of this grave was seen before the survey began.
