The full evidence concerning the MH III-LH I child burial found at Tiryns inside the Unterburg (LXV 38/62) is here presented and thoroughly discussed. The grave goods include personal objects and drinking vessels; the presence of MH, matt painted miniaturistic vessels together with a wheel-made askos decorated with LH motifs and technique is emphasized. Bronze objects and glass beads, together with obsidian small tools, have good comparisons with finds from several children burials from other sites in Argolis, in particular with that from Argos, Tumulus D (140). The location of the tomb, the characteristics of the burial and the grave goods are thoroughly examined, allowing to formulate hypothesis about ritual, chronology and social changes inside the early LH Tiryns community.
