Hot day.

  • J/27-28: 3 boxes of tiles
  • D-F/27-28: 3 boxes of tiles

Worked in grids J/27-28 and D-F/27-28.

Profile D-F/22-23 drawn ( see p. 137 ).

J/27-28: Remaining part of lowest layer down to "batuto" surface is removed.  In J/27, this surface is found; in J/28, it is not as clearly established.  Some tiles (small fragments) still being seen on same level.  Quite a few tiles from J/28, contrary to upper level of yellow stratum here, but very few bones.  Some finds, among them two pieces of gorgon antefix which fit to gorgon fragment from p. 149 .



Area F-D/27-28:

In two cuts, we work down to a level ab. 30-40 cm below previously dug level.  No stones of middle size or above are lifted.  Fairly compact small-stone pack in E-F/27-28; D/27 and western part of D/28 is free from stones.  Earth here yellowish, hard.  Not much tile or pottery; a few finds, among them a nearly complete gorgon antefix in E/27, on a high level, in the imddle of stone fill here.  Two gorgon fragments in F/28.

Three boxes of tiles in D-F/27-28.  A concentration of stones of middle size in E/28 (left); a big stone with flat surface in D/28, depth ca. 50 cm below ground surface.


  • Find #4
  • T-18 E/27
  • In the middle of stone fill, depth ca. 40 cm below ground surface
  • Gorgon antefix, nearly entire
