Beyond, larger square lodges, 2 stages, with elaborate strapwork angle pilasters and, above a cornice, diagonally set pedestals topped with volutes, supporting a sarcophagus and a bronze lion with prey. On the lower stage, a round opening, and on the upper stage a square one, with projecting surrounds. Inner faces have doorways with round openings above.
