It consists of 3 levels cut into the rock, a staircase, a rotunda, the triclinium or banquette hall, a vestibule, an antechamber and the burial chamber with three recesses in it; in each recess there is a sarcophagus. The Catacombs also contain a large number of Luculi or grooves cut in the rock.

These Catacombs are in the district of Karmouz to the east of Alexandria. This area was named Kom El-Shoqafa The cementery dates back to the century A.
