July 9, 1973

Work continued in Agger 10.  In the morning five workmen cleared topsoil from the entire area of the trench, grids K-N, 0-8.  The topsoil stratum contains many chipped rocks of various sizes and a few scattered extremely weathered tile fragments.  Terracotta fragments include pan-tiles , cover-tiles and a few very worn frieze plaque fragments.

Two workmen excavated the top of the Agger, grids K-N, 3-6.  Here lying at the surface were many, very large rocks nearly forming a N-S line along the top of the Agger.  Two other workmen excavated below topsoil in grids K-L, 5-8.  Here, the vase fragments and statue leg fragment were found.

3 cassetti of tiles - discarded

1 strawberry carton - coarse ware.
