Continued cut through Y-Z/13, removing approximately 10-15 cm., creating a level of approximately 140 cm. b.d.  The soil was dark brown with inclusions of carbon and plaster.  In Z/13 pockets of yellow green soil were encountered beneath the darker soil 1/3 cassetta of tile and plaster fragments-many of the plaster frags. had reed impressions, and 6 latte boxes of pottery and bone fragments were excavated.  Finds included several fragments of painted pottery: a fragment of italo corinthian aryballos (Find #6) and a creamware base (Find #7), and an ionic fragment (#5) are the most notable.  Several small flakes of bronze were also found and bagged with the pottery.

Began a cut in Y-Z/15 moving to the west.  Completed work through meter 15.  The soil in this area was dark brown w/ plaster and carbon inclusions; in Z/15 traces of yelllow-green soil was discovered under the darker soil.  This cut will be continued in the afternoon and pottery and tile/plaster quantities will be recorded then in full.  This morning's work recovered 2 latte boxes of pottery and bone, and 2/3 cassetta of plaster, many w/ reed impressions, and a few fragments of tile.

P.M.

Continued this morning's cut through Y-Z/13-14 to a depth of approximately 155 cm. b.d.  The soil continued to be dark brown with inclusions of carbon on the top of the cut, beneath that the soil was more grey with less plaster but still a lot of carbon inclusions.  As work continued a dark red pocket was uncovered in the south west corner of Z/13.  It may be a pocket of heavily burned-decayed plaster, which is very soft due to the rain, or burnt earth-it will be investigated carefully with mesti's.  This area has a very mottled appearance due to the pockets of red, and yellowish-green soil.  In combination with this morning-7 latte boxes of pottery and bone, a few flakes of bronze, and 1 very full cassetta of tile/plaster-with a majority of plaster fragments-were recovered.
