Pottery Summary

IN the 2003 field season, 3165 fragments of pottery were unearthed in T-30.  Of this number, about half were recovered from Loci 6 & 7, the Orientalizing debris and the burn layer, respectively.  275 pieces of bucchero were unearthed, with the largest amounts residing in Locus 7 (83 pieces) then Locus 5 (55 pieces).  Locus 7, the burn layer, is comprised mostly of impasto, buccheroid, and bucchero.

Loci 2 & 3, which correspond to the Archaic period, contain much less pottery than the Orientalizing layers (Loci 5,6 &7).  A total of 491 fragments were recovered with the most common fabric being impasto, then bucchero as a distinct second.  As of yet, the collection of pottery uncovered in T-30 is too uncertain to be able to postulate the specific function of the newly discovered structure in this area.  Further excavation and study of adjacent areas is required before this can be attempted.
