Terracotta Summary



The majority of finds in T-26 1982 west extension were somehow related to roof decoration.  Although the greatest number and most complete pieces came from the deeper level the second cut did yield a number of important and indicative pieces including several ridgepole fragments, a statue fragment and several possible statue fragments.

The next cut immediately yielded antefix fragments including a complete "rabbit" head antefix including the attachment to a building, several incomplete "rabbit" heads, various antefix fragments including hair, several lateral sima ends, indeterminate terracotta fragments and ridgepole tile fragments.  Some of these showed evidence of heat - in particular the ridgepole and pan tile fragments.  The majority of these pieces come from the eastern and southern meters.
