A new cut was initiated through meters L-M/71-76 to a depth of 60-65 cm.  Soil remains consistently medium brown with infrequent small stones.  Roughly 1 full cassetti of tile fragments were removed, along with 1 1/2 latte boxes of pottery.  Carbon is present, but found only infrequently.  Plaster is present in only small, infrequent pieces.

Four objects were made finds from this cut.  A coarse ring base #1, a small bucchero finial (#2), a lateral sima fragment (#3), and a pan tile with a finger impression (#4).



  • Find #3
  • M/75
  • 60-65 cm
  • Lateral sima

In cleaning the trench floor before the next cut, a fragment of a worked stone object was found.  The piece appears to have originally been circular and is of a polished green stone.



Another cut was completed across the floor of L-M/71-76, bringing this area down to an average depth of 70-75 cm.  Soil remains medium brown with stone.  Tile is frequent, but fragmentary and worn.  A total of about 1 1/2 cassetti of tile fragments and 1 3/4 latte boxes of pottery were removed from this cut.  3 joining fragments of a ridgepole tile were made a find.


A new cut was initiated in order to bring the floor of the trench to a more uniform level.  Meters L-M/71-74 were leveled to an average depth of 70 cm.  Soil remains medium brown, although heavy concentration of carbon was noted, especially in M/71 and M/72.  Plaster and tile was heavy although generally worn.
