He is low coverage, but it is a derived E-L618 according to the experts on Anthrogenica. So the low coverage doesn't mean its E-V13, but upstream of it. If correct this suggests it is a side branch which survived further South, probably from the initial phase of the E-L618 spread in the Mediterranean, which led to the expansion within Impresso-Cardial and later Lengyel, Michelsberg, possibly also in Tripolye-Cucuteni. I guess it is either what remained from the earliest journey into Europe, or came back South from whereever the centre of E1b1b was in the Carpatho-Danubian sphere.
Cucuteni-Trypillia is absolutely out of question. Especially considering recent aDNA.
