  • Find #1
  • D-0
  • c. 1.80m
  • Fragment of processian frieze



Work was terminated in sector A-J 23-29 for the present.

Sector A-D - 0-3 -- In sector D-0-3 at depth c. 1.30m from the suface of the existing "agger" lay a heavy concentration of tile fragments badly broken. Below these tiles lay a strata of hard yellow earth varying in thickness from 3cm - 5cm. This strata was heavily packed down and contained nothing within it. It did not appear to extend to the north of sector D [i.e. not more than 4m N. of North wall of Tesoro complex]. It appears to extend toward the "upper bldg. though the exact extent of it has not yet been determined. It extended to the west

into sector D-0 [for extent see diagram p.   ]. Its eastern extent has again not yet been determined. Below this yellow strata lay a strata of reddish brown earth with heavy flecks of carbon within it. It varied in thickness from 20-30cm and extended from D-1-3. Below this was layer of lighter brown earth with less carbon [the strata above being apparently very heavily burnt] and a layer of small stones tightly packed together with hard yellow clay. The tube mentioned on came from this layer. At A-D 0 at the corner of the upper bldg. appeared a heavy row of stones -- apparently a wall -- which extended N from the N.W corner of the uper bldg. It ocurred at a depth c. 1.00-1.30m below the surface (see diagram p. 1 ). Just to the east of the wall at a depth c. 1.75m lay a layer of tightly packed small stones. In future all objects found above the hard packed yellow strata will be given the additional designation (A) -- those in the burnt layer below with (B) while those below the stones with (C).
