23 Sherds and other material found in the fill of a tumulus do not date its construction except in the form of an ante quem non date,24 that is to say, the objects may be interpreted as either contemporary with the erection of the tumulus (a workman scattered a pot he accidentally broke) or earlier than 20 7000 Ans d’ Art en Iran (Paris, 1961) no. 689; R. Ghirshman, The Arts of Ancient Iran (New York, 1964) p. 67, figs. 84–36; A. Godard, Bronzes du Luristan (Paris, 1931) pls. XI, XII, an example from Susa and others from Luristan.

None of the evidence suggests that wood fences or partitions were employed in the construction. Summary Tumuli II and III share certain features: each of their tombs was situated away from the center of the overlying tumulus; each tomb was built into a pit (not absolutely certain for II); each tomb had a pebble floor; and each tomb was covered by a mound of rubble stones. Until a trench is cut into the outer area of Tumulus II, we are not in a position to conclude that it had a stone revetment like Tumulus III, but this is very probable.
