Agora Deposit: A 18:9
Title:   Sacrificial Pyre over Drain A1
Category:   Pyre
Description:   Grave over drain A1 (House A). Date based on the fact that the lopas has the upturned handle and the flat rather than domed lid, not found in examples from the later pyres. LT
West of House C. Pottery and cinders in pit in stratum. The pyre was excavated in two parts: the first in 1939 (A 18:3) and the second in 1940. Its integrity as a single pyre was not recognized until later. Construction of a Roman house had removed all trace of earlier structures here. Cinders lay under and among the pottery, so the pyre was probably burnt in situ. No bone was recorded.
Notes:   Originally A 20:2.
Published together with A 18:3 in Hesperia 47.
