In 2003, a trench was established between T-22 (See SL I) and T-26 (See JBB I. PCS I, CED I and II) in order to probe a potential a relationship between the flat stones resting on the Orientalizing surface of each trench. Subsequent excavation did in fact revealed a portion of a large flat stone in the NW corner of T30 (See AGG/CNT I, p. 115-117). Later probing of the area in 2004 and 2005 revealed two more stones of similar size and relationship to one another (See ECV).

Excavation in the Tesoro area during the 2007 field season hopes to bring to light more evidence of this architectural structure resting between OCII and OCIII. While it is clear that this row of column pads belongs to a building of the Orientalizing period, its extent and function are still unclear. Tesoro 45-48 will all be excavated in hopes of better understanding the size and scope of this building, as well as probing the function of this area of the hill.

T-45 will be dug with various goals in mind

  • To evidence more architectural features of this fourth orientalizing building
  • To gain a better sense of the function of the building
  • To probe the relationship of the building

to the bedrock outcropping that was discovered along the northern baulk of T-30G in 2005,

  • To better understand the southern flank of the Archaic building (due to our proximity to the southern wall).

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.
