Pfeiffer suggests that this fragment was about the pyre of Eteocles and Polyneices in Aetia 4 (fr. 105, The Dragging of Antigone). It is found among other fragments of Aetia 4 in P.Oxy 2170, lending further support to this supposition. Alternatively, the fragment may belong to a story about the pyre of Broteas. This Broteas was a huntsman who scorned Artemis and who, after asserting that fire could do him no harm, hurled himself into a fire in a fit of insanity and perished (Apollod. Epit. 2.2). This alternative possibilty is also alluded to by Pfeiffer.
