Levelled south half of the trench and discovered no more terracotta in association with the tile spread in the north half of the trench.  While this was happening, one person (on rotation) was devoted to cleaning more land over at T27 and another in attempting to find falange joins with the object found Tuesday ( p. 203 #1 ).

After determining the extent of the tile spread, it was decided to lift them out and continue the descent.  Also, the vegetation was removed from approx. meter S47 E163, the north baulk wall of T22 extension of the early \'90s.  The plan is to clean the wall and search for the corresponding rectangular patch supposed to be the footing trench.


Finished removing the tile spread.  Several very large fragments were removed; tomorrow, joins will be sought.  Two tiles were made special finds, one a fragment of ridgepole tile and the other an extremely thick (4 cm) squarish piece.  Next, a cut was begun in meters 51S 160E and 52S 160E to even it with the depth of meters 51S 161E and 52S 161E, which was lowered in excavating the tile.

The soil is still the same color, though with far less inclusions of carbon and disintegrated plaster and terracotta.  The last part of the day was spent levelling the floor and cleaning the baulk walls.  From locus 13, 1 1/8 cassetta of bulk terracotta was found, including the tile spread and 1/4 latte of bulk pottery, marked by a large pithos rim and several tiny fragments of impasto, plus some bone and approx. a dozen pieces of bulk bronze.  From the baulk trimming came a half dozen small pieces of various potteries and 1/16 cassetta of terracotta.  There were 3 special finds and 1 from T22 W ext.
