July 8, 1987


Work conitnued in LM/78-81 in bringing the area down to floor level.  A loom weight was found in L/78, and a piece of ivory inlay in L/80 but otherwise finds remained confined to tile, plaster, and terra cotta.  In L/78, ca. 105cm, a heavy carbon area was encountered, evidence of a burning tree.

Another fragmented loomweight was found in L/78, which brings the present total to 3 loomweights from the same area (see p22 , #1 ).  A bronze ring was also found in L/78.  Because of the lack of finds, work continued with picks rather than mestaline.






Same as morning in LM/78-81.  Large pieces of carbonized wood appeared in L/80, with a bronze flake in the vicinity.  Otherwise finds were limited to tile and plaster fragments, inlcuding ones with straight edges and reed marks, pithos and assorted pottery, including bucchero.

In MNO/72-77, the fourth cut continued in MN/75-77, and around the stump in MNO/73-75. A large piece of glass, possible a rim fragment, was gound on the surface in M/75, but it cannot be determined if it was originally on this level (ca. 70cm below surface) or if it fell from the stump.  A large concentration of pithos fragments appeared in M/75 as well.  Otherwise finds remained confined to tile and plaster fragments and some pieces of pottery.
