T6E (1)

The S pack of the remaining cut was taken down.  1 box of tiles was dumped.  A thick terracotta object was found which had an incised letter on one side ( ).


The third layer was taken off in the E part of the trench.  2 pieces of horserace frieze were found, some pottery and 3 boxes of tiles.

Since the drain pipe appeared right at the W edge of the trench, the adjoining area in T6D was taken down along the line of

the pipe.  More pottery was found, among which the complete base and part of the sides of a cooking-stand (?).  Right E of the drain pipe 3 fragments of a pot were found which showed an unusual profile fabric.  The rim is flat and the side slopes obliquely down to the rounded base.  Two of the fragments join.  ON the outside are rounded scars, probably from the handles ( ).  Also the relation between the drain pipe and the N wall was investigated.  The pipe seems to stop right in the interior of the wall, with stones surrounding it to the E and W.  It ends abruptly as no pieces were found outside the wall to the north.  It either started flush with the building in T6D

or it has been taken up at some earlier point.  Not even scattered fragments appeared there.  The visible length of the line of pipes as 9-10m.

In order to clarify the walls at the E edge of the trench, a new cut was started, extending 5 m to the E.  Topsoil was taken off, starting at the SW corner.
