Description Locus 6 is the rock feature beneath Locus 2 soil that extends from the eastern baulk wall to the western baulk wall of the main trench. The stones of Locus 6 varied from 5-20 centimeters in size. Intermixed with the stones was a very high concentration of terracotta. While excavating, a forno fragment, a lateral sima fragment, and two pieces of freize plaques were unearthed, among other architectural finds. Also, two pieces of vitrified terracotta was found. The terracotta shows a small amount of abrasion. There is still a very small amount of pottery, and the majority of it is coarsewear.

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.
