Work continued in meters K/71-76, bringing this area down to an average depth of 75 cm.  Soil is consistently rocky and gray.  Tile fragments are present, but not in dense concentrations.

In the area of this meter between 50-60 cm, about 3/4 of a cassetti of tile was found.  Pottery is also present, with about 1 latte box removed from the same area.  Pottery is highly worn and fragmentary.

The cut through the same soil type to cir. 65 cm produced little tile or pottery, and it is considerably rockier than even the soil above it, although the soil type is consistent.  Again, stones are heavily concentrated beneath the area of the stump which dominated K/75-74.


Work continued through meter K/71-76 to a depth of 80-85 cm.  Soil in meter K/74-75 was again extremely rocky and soil was rather gray.  Soil was a similar gray color in K/73-74, but less rocky.  In meter K/76, soil was significantly darker and less rocky.

The grayish soil was relatively devoid of material and the grayish rocky soil was nearly completely devoid of material.  However, the darker brown soil in K/76 was significantly more productive, producing almost 1/2 a latte box of pottery and 1/2 a cassetti of tile fragments.  1 fragment of ionic pottery, a half of a small glass bead, and an unusual terracotta which might be a forno fragment all came down from this soil.
