Daily Log

July 5, 1972

In the morning, three men continued work in Trench 19, clearing grids G-I/51-52 to approximately 65 cm below topsoil.  The depth has been decreased since yesterday (80 cm) because a brownish-red layer was encountered which is temporarily being left.

They cleared up to the stone foundation and then proceeded to clean above the rocks.  Next, they cleared T-19 G-I/47-49 above the rocky layer, approximately 70 cm below topsoil.  Then they proceeded to T-19 E-F/47-48 clearing above the rocks.  These areas have produced the following:

  • 3 cassetti of tiles discarded
  • 1 cassette of pottery
  • 1/3 cassette of bones






  • Find #5
  • T-19 F/47
  • Frieze plaque fragment, banquet


  • Find #6
  • T-19 H/47
  • Gorgon antefix fragment, preserves right tress


  • Find #7
  • T-19 G-I/51-52
  • Wall level
  • Impasto bowl on low foot, complete profile from 5 fragments

In the afternoon, three men began to clear T-19 E-F/49-50 above the rocky layer.
