Opening depths were taken for the southern extension of the trench. The new meters will be designated as such:

The extension area confined by 81S 195E, 81S 197E, 82S 195E and 82S 197E at the surface is designated locus 4, which is humus and topsoil.

Locus 4

Coordinate Opening Closing

81S 195E 50.3cm.b.d. 63.4cm.b.d.

81S 197E 65.7 79.7

82S 195E 79.5 81.5

82S 197E 90.9 91.8

81.5S 195.5E 68.6 79.1

81.5S 196.5E 77.9 82.9

The area of locus 4, meters 81S 195E and 196E, was picked 3 times to a depth of approximately 10-15 cm.b.s. at which point a new locus appeared. Locus 5 covers the same area as locus 4. It is gray-brown soil of a fine texture filled with

small rocks. Its confines are 81S 195E, 81S 197E, 82S 195E, 82S 197E. In locus 4, \xbc cassette of terracotta and \xbc latte box of pottery was recovered.

Several pick passes were made through locus 5 which dropped the area of meters 81S 195E and 81S 196E to ~25cm.b.s. 5 special finds were recovered: an unusual piece of terracotta, a piece of vitrified terracotta, acroterial fragment, cavetto fragment and ceramic with full shell inclusion.


Locus 5 was picked 3 times at approximately 5-7cm each time dropping meters 81S 195E and 81S 196E to a depth of 40-45 cm.b.s. 1 unusual piece of terracotta was recovered. 1 \xbc cassetti of terracotta and 1 latte box of pottery was found. Work continued in locus 2. Meters 80S 195E and 80S 196E were picked 5-7 cm to a depth of 40-45 cm.b.s. 1unusual piece of terracotta like that found in locus 5 was recovered and a vitrified piece of terracotta. \xbd latte box of pottery and \xbc cassette of

terracotta was recovered from locus 2.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
