The third layer was taken off, starting from the S edge of the trench.  Depth 25-30 cm.  The sone formations in the trench now stood out very clearly.  There two pilasters - the one which was partly uncovered in T10 and whic is then labeled "A"

see plan, p. 236 .  A second round formation appears in grid PQ 26-27 see sketch plan, p. 242 .  To the N of that there are some patches of what seems to be bedrock.  The second and third layers of grid N-O 26 produced a heavy dark grey earth, with no finds.  The section between column base A and the new one, labeled alpha ( ) on the sketch plan produced a vast number of sherds from plain pots.  10-15 pieces, among which a large handle ( ) were found in the second layer the day before.  Now there appeared one almost complete base of a large pot, fragments of bases from other similar pots numerous rims, all of varying

thickness and profile, some fragments of the belly, a few with a rope design and one or two with a flat ridge.  Two fragments of a cooking stand, one rim and one piece from the side.  In all ca 12 different kinds of rims were counted sherds of a thinner fabric but all coarse, were gathered and filled about 3/4 of a fruit box

One piece of banquet frieze-the right table and dog P28

Part of a funnel Q27

the main part of the sherds was found in Q27; the rest was scattered.

3 boxes of tiles were dumped - mostly pantiles.
