We first worked on the 12th layer of the EW section of CA1.One box of tiles was gathered adn a fragment of a frieze with a stud (S-1).

drawing. profile and overall plan

The test trench CA 14 was extended 2.0m to the W so that it measured 1.50 x 6.00m. it was cleared to a depth of 0.55 at the W end, where galestra appeared at about 0.45 down. Elsewhere, the trench was continued to a depth of ca 0.75m and galestra appeared at about 0.50m. One box of tile fragments was collected, a few pieces of wall plaster, and only a handful of pottery shards. Among these shards, however, was a handle fragment of a black impasto vase with incised decoration.


  • app 30m from the E end of the trench
  • depth ca 0.30 m
  • handle of a black impasto vase with incised decoration

The trench was later extended a second time, 2.00 m to the E (making overall dimensions 1.50 x 8.0 m). two tiny flakes of  bronze were found ca 2.50 m from the east end, at about 0.65 m depth. A strip of bedrock appeared about 1.25-1.75 m from the E and at a depth of ca 1.20 m, and the black soil further E. The trench was abandoned for lack of material.



We measured off an area concentration in the northern extension of CA1, at a width of 3.0m (E of the 17.40m mark), and a length of ca 6.60m,

as previously measured.
