Here are two Infernots. The first has a corridor with two chambers, circular and wedge-shaped. The two chambers have a single bottle-top. Large niches are dug into the walls of the corridor that connects the two rooms. 

In the middle of the second room, there is an artificial table. The second Infernot is also connected to the cellar as the first

but without a corridor. It has a circular plan with a pillar in the center but free from the ground only for 3/4 of its circumference.  On the perimeter of the chamber and the pillar, there is a single bottle-holder plane carved at different heights that remembers the shape of an altar. The ceiling of the second infernot is decorated with ribs that join the walls.
