GRAPH SPEAKS. The data in this graph show the difference in the age at death of incinerated infants at the Carthage Tophet between two teams of scientists, one led by author Patricia Smith of Hebrew University and the other by critic Jeffrey Schwartz of the University of Pittsburgh. The results are remarkably similar, except that although Smith concludes that 67 percent of the infants were born alive and died during the first couple of months of life, Schwartz argues that most of these so identified by Smith had in fact died in the womb or were born dead, suggesting that dead children would not have been sacrificed. Smith, on the other hand, contends that Schwartz erred in his estimating of age at death, having failed to take account of the shrinkage in the incinerated teeth that formed the basis of the study.
