A small pyramid from Kourion

Pyramids are almost exclusively associated with Egypt, but it should be remembered that they appear in other cultures as well. There's the famous Cestius pyramid in Rome (I have no idea why I've never posted a picture of it) and here's another from Kourion. I must unfortunately admit that I know very little about this monument, I can't find any decent book discussing it - I would however guess that it's from the the Roman period, rather early than late, say 0-200 AD, considering the context (notice that I cannot prove this in any way).
