- Curator's comments
- Grave 746 was a burial in a pottery urn (pithos) located inside a completely closed rectangular walled structure. The grave was adjacent to one of the walls and opposite grave 750. The urn was deposited 1 m below the surface and it measured 100 cm long by 70 cm wide. The grave assemblage led to an identification of the burial as being from an adult male although a more precise identification was never pursued. Grave 746 contained wood remains, a pottery vessel type 1, a copper alloy axe (1889.0704.143), a small copper alloy ring (1889.0704.144), a small silver ring (1889.0704.145), nine serpentine beads (1889.0704.146), five bone beads (1889.0704.147) and one bead from conus shell.
