In Goliama Arsenalka mound a tomb was discovered dating back to the middle of  IV century BC. It has a prominent facade, rectangular antechamber and a dome chamber. The entrances to the premises are equipped with two-leaved, folding stone doors. The walls of the dome chamber are built of 11 rows of blocks. The dome is completed with a horizontal keystone. The floor is paved with 28 stone slabs arranged in three concentric bands  around a circular stone block. Opposite to the chamber entrance, a bed is placed east-west-oriented. The tomb was plundered in ancient times; in the antechamber  were discovered the bones of a horse, parts of a gilded breastplate and two small gold ornaments.
