Sometimes, the tetrapyle would have an obelisque above.

The so called Pyramyd of Vienne (Rhone France) most probably was originally an obelisque.

Did it have initially a Pyramydon somehow like the one of Luxor?

"Un pyramidion (pluriel : pyramidia ou pyramidions), appelé aussi benben en égyptien ancien, est un élément pyramidal couronnant le sommet d'une pyramide et plus généralement d'un monument (tel qu'un obélisque)."
