Title:   Pyre in Room 1
Category:   Pyre
Description:   Pyre in Room 1, area west of street (RSY=Pyre 11).
Early in the third quarter of the 4th. c. B.C.
In courtyard. Artifacts, bone, and cinders in irregular pit in floor sequence. The pit had been dug into a marble-and limestone-chip layer over bedrock, and was covered by a Late Hellenistic layer with tile fragments. It may be associated with the abandonment of the house, since the marble-and limestone-chip layer was laid down during the structure's last phase. The pyre was burnt in situ (earth surface reddened).
Contents:   Organic material: animal bone; charcoal (olive).
