Reminded me of this (which I have seen).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treasury_of_Atreus

At Mycenae, an example of "cyclopean" construction by the Mycenean (Bronze Age) Greeks (the blocks were so large the later Iron Age Greeks decided that Cyclops had to have done the construction work).  It was most likely the largest dome in the world for 1800 years (and unknown for most of that time).

Yours is older and no less remarkable in its own way.
