what was burnt with what. and metal was like a dead body.
(various statements about what used to happen "in the days of the priests" ie the temple. so this is a post-destruction of the temple reconstructing what they used to do. under discussion was the burning of different levels of impure things together in the general context of burning chametz on the eve of Pesach - can pure food, uneaten terumah which is chametz, be burnt with impure chametz? part of the discussion is about lamps where the statement is made that metal, in contact with a corpse, is then considered like corpse in it's status of impurity)
