On the western side of The Small River 8 km. WNW from Burial place 5 and 7 km. NNW of Burial place 6 there is a totally destroyed burial place that I have called No. 4 because it was really found previous to No. 5, though it is better mentioned here, after the smaller cemeteries 6 and 7.

Surrounded by tamarisk cones with dead vegetation were four or six destroyed coffins lying on the ground. The wood was much weathered and the boards had dried into curious rolls. Both hollowed-out trunks and the type Fig. 26 had been used as coffins. Only few traces of human bones were to be seen.

I collected some pieces of yellow silk and a coarser fabric, and some dark-brown human hair.

To judge from the type of the coffins this burial place was of the same kind as No. 6 and 7.
