Title:   Late Geometric Burial
Category:   Burial
Description:   Burial disturbed. Located in Middle Stoa, north aisle, "upper trench", piers 3 and 4. Two individuals: small child (ca. 5 yrs. old) and adult female.
In its disturbed state the burial was found (at elevation -57.58m E to -57.52 W), resting against the cut scarp of the bedrock in a pocket 0.65m deep and 0.70m across; evidently, it was originally covered by a mass of cobblestones. The burial has been heavily disturbed in the 7th c. B.C., when a quantity of Proto-Attic and Early Protocorinthian pottery was dumped into the feature. Either at this date or during a later disturbance, the grave "cairn" was leveled, with the cobblestones strewn downward over the earthen slope of the bedrock escarpment.
