Over 2700 sherds of ceramic were recovered from VT-13. In the layers associated with the construction of the tennis court ( Locus 1 , Locus 16 ), the age of materials included modern, medieval, and ancient 4/3rd century BCE impasto and coarseware. The most common fabric was impasto by a large margin, and the most common diagnostic sherd was rims. In Locus 6 and Locus 18 , which fully excavated the fill associated with the construction of the wall, coarseware and fine impasto were the most common material types. Multiple full profiles were found within these contexts (such as VDM 20165042 , 20165046 , 20165075 , 20165077 ). Multiple fragments of imported Greek pottery were also found (such as 20165016 , 20165078 , 20165080 ). Small amounts of Black Gloss (such as 20165033 ) were also found throughout the fill, though in smaller quantities than the 2015 tennis court trenches. The pottery of Greek origin and Italian black gloss wares suggest a terminus post quem of the last quarter of the 4 th century BC.
