This tomb goes back to the 2nd century AD and belongs to a girl that drowned in the Nile. Isadora was renown for her beauty in the city of Hermopolis. One day she sailed to visit her fiancé on the other side of the Nile when her boat sank and she drowned.

Her father built a tomb for her. The tomb is interesting for the Greek poem by Isadora's father who described his daughter as pure and kind, and predicted her the paradise.

The tomb still includes Isadora's well-preserved mummy lying in the burial chamber.
