This, the final cremation in the series, was found in a large pit cut into the summit of the tumulus, a few centimetres below the surface. Most of its grave-goods were placed along the west side of the pit. They consist of bronze vessels of differing types and sizes with especially elaborate handles, a bronze box, along with a bronze cylindrical container, clay and glass vessels, an iron folding stool, a bronze lamp stand, the height of which was adjustable, and whose base ended in lions feet, a bronze lamp etc. In this burial too there was a bronze lantern which was better preserved than the two found in cremation burials B and D.
