Took photos of trench due to rock pack/terracotta feature that was exposed in the northwest corner of the trench, 180E/49S.  Also the burn layer of the Orientalizing period has been exposed.  Declared locus 7 .

Opening elevations:

52S/182E= 26.74m

52S/180E= 26.75m

49S/182E= 26.76m

49S/180E= 26.77

Began by trowelling floor starting in the southern end of the trench. Find #1 was an incised bucchero fragment, find #2 , incised coarseware fragment, find #3 , incised coarseware profile, find #4 , fragments of an impasto cooking vessel, find #5 , ceramic base, find #6 , bucchero tondo, find #7 , buccheroid tondo, and find #8 , worked antler.


Continued trowelling floor.  Discovered large, flat stone on northwest baulk area, 180E/49S.  The elevation of the stone is 26.735m.  It also measures 5.4 meters

P.M. (cont.)

from the large, flat stone in T-22, confirming the hypothesis that there is another building adjacent to the Orientalizing workshop. Find #9 was a piece of vitrified terracotta and #10 is a bucchero tondo.  Completed 1 full pass of the floor for the day and started pulling back the west part of the floor starting at the baulk wall.
