  • Tile: 5
  • Pottery: 1 1/2

An additional 15 sq. meters was mapped out to be excavated.  The area incorporates meters P-T/80-82.  Work began in removing the topsoil.

A section of the northern wall of the trench, covering the meters P/77-79 was drawn.  A student was instructed in the drawing of the sections.

In order to determine the spatial arrangement of ivory fragments being found in R-S-T/74-75 at ~60 cm.  The soil was excavated with dental tools.  The 60 cm cut was continued here very slowly with dental tools.  The determination of the spatial arrangment of the ivory fragments above the floor may lend valuable information to help explain their presence here.

The topsoil was removed through meters T-R/80-82 and into Q/80-82.  A pithos rim fragment was found but not carried down to



the magazzino.



  • Find #1
  • S/82
  • 20 cm
  • Terracotta lion's paw on ridgepole (three major fragments)






Tile: 2

Pottery: 1

Topsoil continued to be removed from meters Q/80-82 and from P/80-82.  Removal of the topsoil brings the level of the trench to ~20 cm.  Note that a great deal of small stones were encountered and removed in meters R/82, Q/82.  These stones appeared to be intermixed with tile



Larger stones beneath these appeared in R-S/82-81 at ~20 cm and were left in place, though at the moment there does not appear to be any indication of a wall.  The soil in general in R-S/82-81 contains a great deal of stone while that in R-S/80 does not.  These large stones at ~20 cm continued into P/81.
