A narrow and elongated rectangular terrestrial pit in a North/Northeast - South/Southwest direction (1.1yd x 1.7yd x 0.5yd), without a structured cover, which hosts a monosome burial. The individual is laid head to the northeast in a prone position, ventral decubitus. The skeletal system in primary position is in excellent condition and in anatomical connection.
The head is placed in profile to the right resting on the back of the right hand, the left arm bent and brought to the right shoulder; the legs juxtaposed bent and placed on the right side. The remains are related to a male adult as they confirm weapons and instruments of accompaniment, being placed on the depositional level as additional elements: along the eastern edge at the level of the head the spear in iron, near the left elbow the razor of bronze and inside the same arm the iron knife.
