Your evidence for that is that in
http://kronk. narod.ru/ library/guschina -zasetskaya- 1994.htm
there appears a line
Priloz^enie 2. Svodnaja tablitsa po dannym pogrebIlanyx sooruz^enij katakombnogo tipa
or, according to Google translate (slightly improved)
Appendix 2. Summary table of data of burial structures of the catacomb type.
which you take to prove that the Kuban graves were of the catacomb type. Maybe you should read the book first?
****GK: The tables of contents is clear enough. There is an abundant literature on "catacomb type" graves of the late BCE and early CE in Eastern Europe. They are Alanic. And there is also a literature on other Sarmatian grave types. Maybe you should read this. Then you would not automatically say "Sarmatians!" when reading of "inhumations" ... Ooops. my mistake. Of course you would, you can't help it. The Odin scenario requires it.*****
