The trench continued to be taken down to depth 0.70m. The small concentration of tiles and pithos fragments in R-Q 70 continued to be cleaned. Q-R 69 was dug - hardly any tile or pithos fragments appeard. From these areas 2/3 casetta of plaster and a few fragments of pottery and bone were found. A few small fragments of tile were removed.

Q 65 and part of P 65 was taken down to 0.70m using mestilina. The concentration of tile, plaster, and pithos fragments continues. A few fragments of pottery, bone and plaster were found.

The stump in R 65 was started to be cleaned. A few fragments of tile, plaster and pottery were found. A fragment of a rocchetto with a stamped design was found in R 65.

Altogether in this are 1/2 cassettta

of tile and plaster and 1/3 box of pottery were found.

The third cut into the plaster layer (depth 0.70m) was finished. The tiles in P-R 69 (extending slightly into 68) were cleaned. Very few tiles turned up in P 68. P 65 ws cleaned. Tiles slightly less frequent in P 65 than in Q 65. 1/2 cassetta of tiles, 1 cassetta of plaster. 1 box of pottery, and a few fragments of bronze and bone were found.

The overall impression of the tiles in this depth is : A large concentration of  pithos fragments (including the large lip - see p.53) and tile fragments (mostly fairly small) and a few small rocks in P-R 65; the straight line of rocks and tiles in P-R 67 (see p.69); a rather wide concentration of tiles, pithos fragments and small rocks in P-R 69 (extending slightly into 68 - width app 1m) and a line of mostly tile in P-R 70 (app width  0.50m). Very few fragments of tile were found inbetween these concentrations.
