August 13, 1969


Work continued on the wheel barrow path with the purpose of revealing the continuation of the E/W wall in T6B-C with thos in T6D.  one piece of cornice was found (T6D).


Removal of earth in the new cut continued.  One piece of cornice was found (T6F D7).  One box of tiles was dumped from the south end of the trench.  IN the northern part no tiles came up.  The earth contained stone shavings and chips.  By the end of the afternoon, the top of a foundation had appeared.  This stone course, about one meter wide, projected off from the southern E/W wall at right angles and ran north intersecting the corresponding northern E/W foundation.  This W/S wall appears to have continued north beyond the intersection

  • Vase fragment handle

which has been revealed in T6F.

In T6F, a female sima head was found ( ), complete except for the hair.  Unfortunately, the terracotta was in a state of disintegration and there was no consolidating fluid available.  Hence the head is now completely marred by a split across the left eye.  Also in the grid was found a fragment of horse race frieze left upper corner containing three stirgils, two studs, and the lebes.
