July 27, 1982


Tile: 17 Pottery: 10

The cut in RST/65-67 was continued to the east, to a depth of c. 70 cm.  The soil continued to be reddish brown, with plaster and tile constantly found.  Pottery was also consistently present in this cut, with fine redware and bucchero being found most commonly.  Two cassetti of pithos fragments were also found, but not recorded with

the tile cassetti.  Even at c. 70 cm, the terracotta/mortar floor was not reached, probably indicating that the edge of the floor is at an angle to the trench, and will be encountered as this cut progresses to the west.

The area PQR/75-76 continued to be excavated to with in c. 5 cm of the floor level.  Tile and plaster were found throughout the soil excavated.

The baulk between MNO/79 and 80 continued to be removed.  When a level approximately 5 cm above the tile and stone in MNO/80 was reached, work slowed to hammer and mestaline, to ensure that no damage would be done to any tiles or stone under the baulk.  Several bronze fragments were found in the baulk, as well as two boxes of pottery.
