Title:   Pyre North of House G
Category:   Pyre
Description:   North of House G (RSY=Pyre 13).
Concentration of artifacts, small pieces of bone, and burnt material in stratum, no pit discerned. The pyre is cut by the trench of a wall of a Roman house to north. It was found in digging "Hellenistic" fill; no further information about the stratigraphy or about the pottery from that fill is available. although the pyre was apparently not burnt in situ, the objects lay in a compact mass, not much disturbed, and they are mostly complete.
Notes:   Initially was recorded as grave/cremation burial.
