July 17, 1987


L/54-55 and P/54-55 were cleaned (in the direction of one another) to 70 cm level.  50 cm from topsoil at the baulk at K/54 produced a female antefix head from the Upper Building.  L-O/55 revealed a rock pack.  This pack runs north-south parallel to the trench and might be a wall of some sort.  Tile fragments rest on top of a large stone in O/55.  This is similar to a tile-rock find in R-S/56 at this level.  Assorted pottery - all badly worn was found in this cut.  Half a latte box was filled.  Half a latte box of bone was also filled.

Washout in T-22 was lifted.  Architectural tiles, plaster, pottery, bronze, and bone were all found.  Tile was found in abundance.  A piece of handle or possibly feline jaw was found in [information not given] .  A double handle was found in [information not given] .




Rock pack in L-O/55 was cleaned further and photographed.  Large amounts of plaster are coming from this area.

Q/54 was brought down to the 70 cm level.  Little was found in this cut.  Several pieces of terracotta tiles with protruding edges on one side were found.

Washout in T-22 was lifted.  Tile and plaster fragments were found in abundance.  One half a tall latte box of pottery was found.
