4th. c. BC.
Concentration of artifacts, burnt bone, and charcoal in floor makeup consisting of earth, dug bedrock, and marble chips, no pit discerned. The pyre was partly covered by a pebble floor associated with phase 3 of the house, but the fill in which it was found cut through a floor associated with the second phase, and it predates the abandonment of the house substantially. The artifacts rest on a heavy layer of charcoal and ash, with burnt bone throughout, suggesting burning in situ.
