We clean down additional areas of the tile concentration in N 90-92 for photographs emphasizing a fragment of incised cut-out akroterion protruding up in m 90.  As is usual in such concentrations in this area of T26, there is also a fair amount of plaster, often large pieces with reed impressions, or rocks, and rocks, and of pithos fragments, as well as a modest amount of pottery.  Removing in M-N 90 we recover 2 cassette of tile and ca. .25 of plaster; also over a latte box of pottery and several pithos fragments.  Cleaning to "floor level" in O-R 92 we encounter a column base, which is badly worn - not surprising given its proximity, ca. 10 cm to the surface.  This yields no pottery and very little tile and plaster.  We also cut back the baulk across K 88-90 in preparation for a section.  From near the floor level at the very bottom, ca. __cm, come many large chunks of an unusual slab (no. 33); tile1, plaster 1.  The removal and tabulation of tile fragments is completed.  From this material a number of pieces are saved: fragments with incised letters or signs nos. 1-16; fragments with finger marks, nos. 17-22; other anomalous fragments, nos. 23-24; a lateral sima jaw, no. 25; and some fragments of covertile, nos. 26-30.

From the cutting back in K 88-90 comes a latte box of pottery.

We save some large pieces of plaster and large portion of a covertile from M-N 90.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
