The grave contained a large, tubby amphora, S-shaped beakers which include a complete and loosely patterned herringbone beaker, smaller but undecorated beaker fragments and two miniature vessels along with animal teeth pendants and shell beads. The skull is apparently missing and the body was 'strongly disturbed'.

The flint fragments (17) may come from the filling of the grave, however this is also not determined. There was a Carpathian grindstone made of sandstone.
41 wolf-tooth pendants were included of at least six adult wolves, drilled using different tools, perhaps at different times or by different people. Along with the shell beads, the teeth and beads may have formed a single necklace and/or bracelets.
