Daily Log

July 9, 1994

A new cut was initiated over meters L-M/71-76, creating a stop in the flow of the trench.  The grayish soil with stones is now only in K/71-76 while the soil in L-M/71-76 has changed to a somewhat more granular light brown soil with fewer small stones.  As yet, there is no evidence of carbon or plaster inclusions in this soil.

Tile is much more frequent then in the previous grayish stratum, and pottery recovery is substantially more frequent.  Bone is also found in increasing quantities.  With the cut completed, roughly 1 1/3 cassetti of tile fragments were found, along with 2 latte boxes of pottery.

The stratigraphic shift from the grayish soil to the granular light brown soil is complete over meters L-M/71-76.  Material from this lower stratum is mixed.  Finds 1 and 5, a horse race frieze plaque fragment and a fragment of a gorgon antefix, appear to be associated with the archaic phase.  However, in this same soil, we have also removed a fragment of a S.E. building type water spout from the lateral sima, suggesting a mixed stratum.  However, it is also possible that the

large stump which dominated meters K/74-75 has contributed to movement of material in the soil.
