These two small tombs, Nº94 and 95, are carved around a bend in a rock outcrop in Jebel Khraymat. Nº94 was designed in the simple "Half-Merlons" style. Its façade has a short inscription stating that it was carved in the 17th year of the reign of King Malichus II, which is equivalent to 57 AD. It belonged to three brothers Abda, Aliel and Gaddu, and their mother, Ahakli bint Himyan. Tomb Nº95 is silent, with no inscription. It follows the Double Row of Merlons" style, with no other ornamentation apart from a simple frame around the doorway.
