Middle-sized tumulus. The bones were almost gone; the coffin had passed the fire. On the left side was the head of a pilum, and its spike or ferrule [M 6591]. Here were also a silver pin [M 6590]; the blade of a knife; and some egg-shells, which were very white and firm. At the feet was a blackish urn [M 6589], with a narrow neck, capable of containing more than a pint. Grave, two feet and a half deep.
