|Munsell Color||10 YR 4/4 Dark Yellowish Brown|
|Description||Locus 4 covers only the northern ¼ of the trench. It is a dense greenish-brown clay that is hard to break up, with inclusions of carbon, small pieces of chert and crumbling flakey limestone. Pottery and tile was recovered in abundance from this layer, with impasto pottery being the most prevalent. Bone was recovered in this locus but due to the nature of the soil it is very decayed and easily breaks into pieces ~2cm or smaller in length. Some slag and vitrified terracotta was recovered but in very small numbers. Locus 4 underlay Locus 2 and overlay Locus 5. It abuts Locus 3 to the south, and also abuts and equates to Locus 10 in VT-13 to the north and is part of the same deposition of materials in an intentional cutting that was revealed in VT-12 and VT-11, as well in other parts of VT-13. Locus 4 revealed no chronologically diagnostic artifacts, however it has the same assemblage of artifacts that were recovered in the other trenches, which point to a deposition event during the late 4th and early 3rd centuries BCE.|
