Agora Deposit: H 14:1
Title:   Pyre
Category:   Pyre
Description:   Pocket, identified as sacrificial pyre by SIR. Possibly disturbed. Outside south wall of building. Concentration of pottery in a small pocket below a "Hellenistic" fill. There is no mention of bone or burning, but some of the pottery is burnt. The pyre dates shortly after the proposed date for the beginning of the second phase of Building E; the chronology may be sufficiently flexible to allow association with this reconstruction of the building.
Contents:   A miniature black glazed lekanis (P 1465) and a small one-handler accompany the saucers and plates and the miniature chytra (P 1470).
Notes:   No lot.
