It appeared that the former wheel barrow path concealed a wall, ca 90 cm wide, which runs as a crosswall between the N and the S wall in T6D.  The wall was cleaned, starting from the S end.  This strip has produced in all 1 box of tiles, sherds and bones so far.


The third layer was taken off.  The S wall continues E all through the trench.  There were no traces of a continuation of the N wall.  Instead, the whole area E of the last crosswall produced almost nothing that is , 1 box of tiles was

dumped.  The dirt was flaky and more greyish-yellow than in the rest of the trench.

Work was started to clean the strip between the drain pipe and the last cross wall.  Tiles had been few in the 2nd and 3rd layer.  Now, at a depth of ca 35 cm, the amount increased considerably, especially in grid F-H 5.  From this strip 3 boxes of tiles were dumped.  About 1/2 box of wall plaster was collected.  With the tiles were found 3 large pithoi handles, one of which had a scratched incision (a letter?).  Other finds were pat of a sima head, fragments of sima cavetto and frieze.  One piece

One more segment of the drain pipe was lifted, that is no. 3 from the S, inside the S. crosswall. The fragments were well preserved and the whole tube was in place.  Between pipes nos. 3 and 4 a small spindle whorl (disintegrated) was found.  Inside the pipe only dirt was found.

The trench was swept.
