Description Locus 3 was the rock feature of CB 46. Though the density of material varied across the trench, the feature extended across the entire surface of CB-46 and shared the same coordinates as the anterior loci. The soil between the rocks remained the soil of Locus 2: olive/brown in color and claylike in texture. The rocks themselves were very compact and small, averaging 5-10 cm in diameter, though occasionally bigger rocks (20-25cm) were found. Layered within the rocks was a great amount of architectural terracotta. While most of this material was non-diagnostic, a frieze plaque fragment (20110049) was uncovered within the NW corner and another (20110048) in NE. These are clearly dateable to the archaic period. Relatively little pottery was found within this locus; no bone. Many roots continued into the feature. After finding the extent of the feature in both locus 6 and locus 7 of the northern and southern extension, the entirety of this feature was deemed locus 8.

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.
