All loci in T-67 yielded pottery. Locus 1 was topsoil and did not yield much in terms of pottery (6% of total). Moreover, loci 2 , 3 , and 8 did not yield much pottery relative to the other loci (6%, 5%, and 4% respectively). An uncatalogued Medieval tondo fragment was found within Locus 1 . Locus 1 and 3 were also the only loci where bucchero was not recovered. In all the loci, the recovered pottery tended to be mostly coarseware and impasto. However, as the trench is only 1x3m in size, the amount of pottery recovered is quite substantial. Loci 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 were responsible for nearly three quarters of all pottery recovered from T-67.

While excavating, locus 3 appeared to be an archaic tile fall layer, producing a large amount of tile, but very little pottery (5%). In contrast, locus 7 was an Orientalizing stratum directly above the Orientalizing burn layer, and held the most pottery out of any of the loci.

A rosette fragment ( 20140046 ) was recovered from locus 4 which retained a partial petal and exterior face. The slip is still visible on the exterior of the petal and there is a thin edge running across the edge of the petal. A second rosette fragment ( 20140065 ) was also discovered from locus 5, that preserves two petals and a very worn finished edge. The back of the petals is slightly curved and slipped. A third fragment of a terracotta rosette ( 20140091 ), which was recovered from locus 7 , preserves portions of 3 petals and the thicker exterior edge of the rosette. A final fourth fragment of a terracotta rosette ( 20140092 ) was also recovered from the same locus and preserves portions of two petals and the thicker exterior edge of the rosette.

Also from locus 5 , a fragment of a decorated bucchero strap handle ( 20140071 ) was recovered that preserves an etched face that is feline. There appears to be eyes, a nose, and 2 ears. The fragment is convex with the decorated side protruding out slightly. The reverse is undecorated, scratched, and a modern break exposes a light orange biscuit. The finished edges are slightly curved, which help create the shape of the feline face.

A procession frieze plaque ( 20140049 ) was also recovered from locus 4 . It preserves portion of the finished back surface, two complete dentils, and two partial dentils. The back of the plaque is smooth.

The frieze plaque is believed to be part of the procession because of the amount of empty space without decoration. In other frieze plaque themes, such as the Banquet or Horserace, have iconography that is much closer together. A second fragment of a procession frieze plaque ( 20140088 ) was recovered from locus 5 and preserves part of a person seated on the cart and the shaft of the umbrella. The head is missing from an ancient chip.

Also from locus 4 , a painted revetment ( 20140060 ) was recovered and has a small amount of preserved paint and a nail hole.
