Recent work involving negative index under conductive losses indicated domains of sideband frequencies with negative phase index and associated lossy spiral spatial polarization states. In this paper, we re-visit a chiral material subject to first-order sideband dispersion, and introduce dielectric losses via the electric polarization to explore possible negative phase indices and related spatial polarizations.
