  • E-F/25-26: 2 cassette
  • Tiles - G-J/23-24: 2 cassette; G-J/25-26: 2 1/2 cassette
  • Pottery: see below

Work continued in area T-18, grids G-J/23-26 and EF/25-26, earth being removed to a depth of ab. 25-30 cm:s (40-45 cm:s including the removed topsoil).

G-J/23-26: A strip of topsoil removed in J/23-26, to reach the new 9 meters line of pichetti, measured from the north wall (topsoil previously removed only up to ca. 8 1/2 m:s.

Soil light brown, rather dry and loose, not very much stones, no large quantities of tiles or pottery, but some good finds.


  • Find #2
  • T-18 H/24
  • d. ca. 10 (25) cm:s
  • Fragment of frieze (banquet)

Measures between parenthesis include removed topsoil.  When just one measure is given, measure indicates depth from once existing ground surface.

In the next cut in the same grids (G-J/23-26), another ca. 15 cm:s of earth was removed, starting in grids G-J/23.  Soil here somewhat brown, more damp; in some parts turning yellowish (mixed with clay?), but doesn\'t seem to be a definite new stratum.  Tiles more frequent, sometimes lying thickly on top of each other, not forming, however

a well-defined concentrated tile layer.  Pottery quantities and quality same as before.  Some bones.  Upper surface of two fairly large limestones appears in G-H/24-25, depth ca. 40 cm below pre-existing ground surface ( ).

Two more works (from Jean's trench) continued work in grids E-F/25-26, with the purpose of trying to define more clearly the extension and character of the very hard earth-stone pack found here.  As noticed before, it doesn\'t seem to extend further north into grids G-J.  A fragment of TC frieze plaque found right below the existing surface in D/26.

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.
