Title:   Burned Deposit
Category:   Pyre
Description:   Burned deposit: Middle Terrace, south of Archaic cemetery.
RSY: Pyre 10
Pottery, burnt bone, charred logs, and heavy burning, recovered by tunneling under the cement floor of a Late Hellenistic workshop, between two lekanai set into the ground and functioning with the cement floor. The lekanai and cement floor are much later than the pyre and therefore unrelated to it. Stratigraphy contemporary with the pyre could not be recovered.
