The entire trench was now declared locus 8 .  It has these opening co-ordinates and depths:

NW = 176.7-E/49.3-S = 26.89 m. above absolute elevation

SW (1) = 176.2-E/52.0-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation

SW (2) = 177.0-E/52.0-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation

SW (3) = 177.0-E/52.4-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation

SE = 180.0-E/52.4-S = 26.92 m. above absolute elevation

NE = 180.0-E/49.3-S = 26.89 m. above absolute elevation

The color of the locus is dark brown with several good size stones in the eastern sector (ranging up to approximately 35 cm. across the longest dimension).  Excavation occurred mostly in the eastern half of the locus, going down approximately 5 cm.  Some trowelling and brushing occurred in the western half.  Approximately 4 bowls (24 cm. in

diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments along with some plaster were recovered.  Approximately 6 1/2 latte boxes of pottery sherds and approximately 2 1/2 latte boxes of bone fragments were found.  Two special finds were made (#1:  Sherd with incisions; #2:  Rim sherd with black slip).  Also a fragment of pithos rim was found.

Today an extension of T-30-G was made to the west (i.e. Western Extension).  Balk cleaning occurred at approximately 172.5-173.5-E (wall facing south), removing a small triangular package of earth (extending approximately 50 cm. from the south face) down to a large stone that may have been used as a column pad.  This stone is approximately 26.90 m. above absolute elevation.  Approximately 2 bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments were recovered.  Approximately one latte box of pottery sherds and bone was found.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
