Weekly Report

Area I-J/0-1 (pithos area)

The area was cleared; two pithos probably in situ.  Very fine pottery recovered in quantity around and below fallen pithos and tile fragments, also inside pithos 1.  Esp. remarkable are two small goblets of red burnt bucchero supported by feline legs.  Floor level of pithos area established.

Pithos 1 is clearly cut through by \'red area\' wall which thus was constructed later than pithos unit, as was realized from another point of view on p. 86 .

Area F-H/0-1

In H (G)/0-1 wall (foundation stones with clay), delineating pithos unit northwards was struck upon, as expected.  It continues the line of E-W wall in R6 disclosed by

Ingrid Edl.-Gantz.  It is on ab. the same level as N-S wall in R5 I-J/1-2; corner between them should be found in [information not given] .  North of this wall, F-G/0-1 is covered by a tile layer which clearly is to be connected with the wall.

Area B-D/0-3

A new cut was started in these grids.  \'Red area\' wall showed up on a very high level in its northern continuation, in grids B-D/1-2.

The area was partly covered by a stonefill similar to stonefill \'pavement\' in F-J/0-1.  A burnt layer was found some 20 cm below previously dug surface.
