Middle-sized tumulus; grave three feet deep. The coffin had passed the fire; the bones were almost gone. The head of a pilum, on the left side of the skull; the hemispherical umbo, one cross iron, and one broad-headed stud of a shield; the blade of a sword, as at No. 98; two small iron buckles; and the blade of a knife. At the feet was a narrow-necked urn of coarse earth, capable of holding about two quarts [M 6497].
