Daily Log Entry for Monday, 2 July 2007



Light pick passes were made in the south and SW. We defined roofing tile in the center and picked near the rocks in the SE. While we were defining tile in the southern meter of the trench, we found a piece of limestone with unusual marks or striations. Since we are not sure if these marks are man-made, the rocks was declared a find (find #1). While the tile was being defined in the central area of the trench, we found a piece of terracotta with what appears to be an eye in it. (Find #2) Since the terracotta has a finished edge, it is probably the eye of a feline waterspout. We also pulled up most of the rocks in the SE corner of the trench. There was some tile under them, but not in as dense a concentration as the deposits in the NE corner or the SW area of the trench. While defining and sweeping we found an unusual piece of whose shape does not seem to belong to any of the three types of roofing tile.

It is probably a very worn fragment of the sima.  (Find #3)


No work in the afternoon due to the Palio.
