Tile 1.5

Plaster almost 1

Pottery .25 strawberry

We dig deeper in O-P 86-88.  In O 88 we reach a depth of 45 cm. and a much intensified burn soil with large bits of carbonized wood.  In P 86-87 burn soil remains intense as we reach a depth of 30-50 cm.  IN P 88 a soil flecked with white amtter gives way at about 25 cm. from the surface to a fairly intense burn soil; at about this depth a tile concentrationbegins, as stones remain frequent.  In O 87-88 the tile and rock continues to abound.  At 45 cm. down we encounter much of a covert ile atop much of a pan tile and a large rock.  Bronze "flakes" are foun in some quantitiy, mainly in O/P 86/87, where a tile concentration emerges (under and among stones and plaster) anew at depth of 40 cm.  Among the bronze is also a lotus/palmette inlay; at about 50 cm. down we find the terracotta fragment No. 5 and this area also yileds two ivory fragments (No. 1, 2).  Pottery is scant but includes a couple of fine bucchero fragments.  Some bone and some slag or vitrified matter is also saved and an unusual pan tile fragment, also some carbonized wood.
