Total pottery for T-48: 2798 sherds

T-48 yielded a fair amount of pottery in this excavation season. In all loci, by far the most common type of pottery recovered was impasto. Additionally, a significant amount of both coarseware and fine impasto sherds were found; very little bucchero was uncovered in T-48 this season.

Most of the loci of T-48 yielded very little pottery. Most notably, only 12 sherds of pottery were recovered from Locus 9 , a hard packed, yellowish soil containing small carbon inclusions. However, over half of the pottery found in T-48 was excavated from three loci: Loci 5 , 8 , and 10 . Locus 5 , which was comprised of a gray, flaky, galestra-like soil, produced 335 sherds of pottery; Locus 5 though was a very thick soil package, and so ceramics were not densely concentrated in this locus. 517 sherds of pottery were recovered from Locus 8 , a stratum of olive brown, slightly mottled soil. Locus 8 was not nearly as thick as Locus 5 , and thus ceramics were concentrated more densely in Locus 8 than in Locus 5 .

The stratum that yielded the most pottery was Locus 10 , which was made up of an extremely plaster-rich and mottled soil containing inclusions of terracotta and carbon. Over one-third of all pottery found in T-48 was recovered from this locus. Additionally, Locus 10 , in comparison with other loci, contained relatively little impasto while yielding relatively high quantities of both coarseware and fine impasto. Furthermore, the vast majority of bucchero recovered from T-48 this season was from Locus 10 .

Very little datable pottery was recovered from T-48 this excavation season. However, some sherds of Italo-Corinthian pottery were found, which may provide datable information. From Locus 5 , this includes a handle fragment ( 20070082

20070082
), from Locus 8 a body sherd ( 20070132
20070132
), and from Locus 10 an incised sherd of creamware ( 20070242
20070242
), a painted body sherd ( 20070247
20070247
), two sherds from a globular aryballos ( 20070187
20070187
and 20070310
20070310
), another painted and incised body sherd ( 20070311
20070311
), and a painted base ( 20070257
20070257
). Additionally, some sherds of bucchero were found which may also be datable. From Locus 3 , there is a body sherd with an incised fan pattern ( 20070016
20070016
), and from Locus 5 a body sherd with incised concentric circles ( 20070080
20070080
) and a shoulder fragment with a register of incised chevrons ( 20070106
20070106
).
