Photos of the tiles.

July 30, 1984


Cassette of tile: 1 (60% plaster)

Boxes of pottery: 1/4

The "Tiles" in gamma/57-58 were cleaned off and photographed. In cleaning off the "floor," it became apparent that another, fifth "tile" might have been part of this line. Only a fragment, which is cracked, remains approximately 50 cm to the west of the last fragment - in grid gamma-delta/56.

In further cleaning the "floor" in gamma-delta/56-58, a dip in the "floor" or trench was uncovered running east to west parallel to the rows of column bases. It measures approximately 23 cm wide and 5 cm deep. The soil filling the eastern end of the trench appeared to be burned.

A topsoil cut was made in zeta-eta/47. The dark, rooty topsoil contained a small amount of tile, some plaster, and a small amount of pottery (coarseware and bucchero). A column base in the middle row was uncovered in zeta/47-48. It appears to be pretty worn and chipped. The "floor"

appears to continue to the north and west of the base, but it seems to break up on the south side.

The topsoil cut in zeta-eta/48 was continued, bringing T-25 around the southwest corner of T-26. This cut was basically the same as that in zeta-eta/47- dark, rooty soil yielding some very worn tile, and a small amount of pottery and plaster.

Work was done cleaning down and around the stump in delta-epsilon/55. Quite a bit of tile and pottery (mainly coarseware) was in the soil adhering to the roots. Approximately 1.67 m to the west of the last "tile" (in the row of four) in gamma/57 are two more of the same type of "tiles." They are directly in line with the previous "tiles," buit they are partially under the stump.
