LOS ANGELES ? The crypt above Marilyn Monroe is going back on the auction block.

Bidding for the marble mausoleum crypt will start at $500,000 beginning Oct. 19, according to organizer Eric Gazin of AuctionCause.com. A previous $4.6 million bid for the space fell through in August when Elsie Poncher first attempted to auction off her late husband’s crypt.

The new eBay.com auction will end Oct. 29 and require a 1 to 5 percent refundable deposit, based on the bid.

Gazin says he believes the crypt at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery will fetch “millions of dollars” at auction. Other celebrities including Farrah Fawcett, Natalie Wood, Rodney Dangerfield, Dean Martin, Jack Lemmon, Eva Gabor and Truman Capote have also been laid to rest at the cemetery.
