Minor remains have survived from the paintings of the first layer on the north and south walls of the hall.



In the first registre of the north wall painting is discerned only as colored spots. It is impossible to identify the composition.

The lower registre of the eastern section of the south wall features a graphic image of the half-length male figure with a halo and hands spread out in prayer; the image is confined within a black contour. He seems to be holding an incense burner in his right hand and a flag – in the left. The image is general by nature. Circular cheeks are painted red, while the clothing is dark reddish-brownish.
