Backfill was removed from I/52 and H-I/51-50 and the baulks of these meters were scraped.  A fossilized shell, number 2, was found in the washout of meter I/51 in the south baulk.

A 5-7 cm cut was made in meters G/49-44 and a portion of G/43, bringing this area to a rough depth of 60 cm.  Stones (small to medium) were found intermitantly throughout these meters, but not in the concentrations characteristic of the "stone pack" feature.  Soil was medium brown with plaster and infrequent carbon inclusions.  Tile and pottery was infrequent and worn.  A small portion of a rectangular bronze shaft, number 1, and a highly fragmentary rochetto, number 3, were found.




Work continued in meters G/49-44 with a cut bringing the area to roughly 65-70 cm.  Soil remains unchanged (medium brown with plaster and carbon).  Stones occur in low frequency and are not large.  Tile is worn and fragmentary.  Pottery found in relatively high concentrations in meters G/45-44, but all is worn and fragmentary.  Two small fragments of ionic pottery were found in this cut (find numbers 4 and 5).
