Cassette of tile: 4 (35% plaster)

Boxes of pottery: 1 1/4

The second cut in gamma-epsilon/55-57 was continued. This area continued to yield a great amount of tile and plaster. Some pottery was found - mainly coarseware, but a few fragments of fineware as well. More large chunks of terracotta were encountered yet left "in situ." This cut was not quite completed.

Plan of T-25, as of July 26.


Cassette of tile: 1/16 (50% plaster)

Boxes of pottery: 5 fragments

A topsoil cut was made in grids zeta-eta/46. Very little tile, plaster, or pottery was found in this cut.

Upon closer inspection, the large chunks of terracotta mentioned on p. 21, 23, and 25 appear to be of a more finely levigated material than standard Murlo terracotta. They are almost plaster-like. There is mica, but the stone inclusion is very low. One of the pieces seems to have finger-like impressions, as if the piece had been molded before firing.
