Clearing with mestaline and brushes continued in meters J-K/12 to a depth of ca. 65 cm.  The soil in these meters was predominantly light grey brown in color with a light concentration of small chunks of carbonized wood.  In addition, a number of small stones were uncovered in the northern half of meter J/12.  These stones, however, appear to be only randomly placed.  The soil along the southern edge of meters J-K/12, although also light brown in color, was more densely packed.  The pocket of galestra uncoverred in the eastern and central portino of meter K/12 was further defined.  It now appears to

continue further to the east into the trench baulk.  One half of  box of impasto sherds, four small pieces of bone and a piece of slag were found in the light grey soil.  Clearing also continued int eh northern edge of meter J/14 and in meter J/15 to a depth of ca. 128 cm.  The soil along the nerthern edge of meter J/14 and the western half of meter J/15 was light grey-brown in color with some small roots.  Five pieces of worn impasto were found in the light gray-brown soil.  The trench floor in meters G-I/15 was scraped to a dpth of ca. 140 cm.  The soil in the eastern half of meter I/15 was dark grey brown

in color with a light concentration of carbonized wood and disintegrated yellow and orange plaster.  Only two pieces of pottery were found in the dark grey brown soil.  Clearing was also begun in meters H-I/13.  This area had been previously excavated to a depth of ca. 95-100 cm. last year.  The soil in this area was dark grey brown in color with a heavy concentration of carbonized wood and disintegrated red and yellow plaster.  In addition, several small to medium size stones were uncovered in meter H/(13.  One half of a box of impasto sherds, a few pieces of bone and a few small pieces of vitrified tile were found in the grey soil.  A poorly preserved

bronze pin was discovered in meter H/13 at 100 cm.
