This paper presents new evidence concerning the discovery of an ancient tomb in the vicinity of Petra in southern Jordan. The discovery of intact ancient tombs is very rare in the countryside of Petra. Research fieldworks have revealed too many structure sites and very small number of tombs. This paper offers a thorough description to a recently discovered tomb in southern Jordan. It also includes discussion of the dating evidence and the function of such tomb. The tomb is quite significant in terms of its layout, masonry and location. Tombs of this type have not been recorded hitherto in the study area or elsewhere in Jordan.
