Work continued in Agger 10.  In the morning the workmen finished cleaning off the top of the Agger.  The soil here contains rocks, tile fragments (including ridge-pole tile) and pithos fragments as well as some scattered coarse pottery - but not so many frieze placque fragments as the area previously excavated directly to the south.  Afterwards one man excavated in the area between the two walls (grids G-J 1-2) while the other worked in the area to the east (grids G-J 4-8).  At the present time all rocks lying above the foundations which extended from K-N 3 into G-J 3 are being left in place as they appear to show a N-S line slightly to the east of and about one meter above the foundations; they perhaps are part of the fallen wall as seen in the profile to the south (see p. -blank-)

In the afternoon two workmen continued excavating in the area between the two walls (grids G-J 1-2) in the yellowish soil stratum (A).  This area has produced many tile and pithos fragments and some frieze plaque and sima pieces, as well as a bronze pin.  Three other workers continued working in grids G-J 4-8 in the lower half of the yellowish soil stratum.  There continues here to be a heavy concentration of various sized rocks (probably agger fill) and tile fragments - an especially heavy concentration of pan-tiles of very heavy proportions was found in grid J-8 along with the terracotta wheel (?).  Pottery from this area is mostly coarse and very meagre - with the exception of the miniature cup and a few fine shards from grid J-4
