PG/789 Woolley called this the 'King's Grave' because of its elaborate death pit that included many weapons. The main chamber, however, had been looted, leaving only a few scattered remains. The death pit contained the remains of more than 60 people, six of whom wore helmets and stood at the dromos/entrance as if to guard it. (none)
