Tomb 14

Tell Abu Sabun (Arabic: تل أبو صابون‎) is the site of an ancient necropolis of Homs, in Syria. A total of 22 tombs had been discovered before the greater part of this necropolis was made to disappear by 1952 in order to build a municipal stadium.[1] Among the artifacts found in these tombs was the Emesa helmet.
