VI.8.14 May 2006. Looking west across entrance room.  According to Mau, there used to be a brick bench on the right, with the two niches above it. In the middle was a block of limestone, which may have been used as an altar. At the rear is a door leading into a small back room.  This chapel was formerly thought to be a barber shop.
