Locus 6 consisted of a packing of small stones situated in a medium brown, mottled soil. The stones were small, most measuring only 10-15 cm in maximum dimension. The stones were arranged in a roughly rectangular shape. The soil of Locus 6 was mottled, with teracotta, limestone, and charcoal inclusions. We recovered relatively large quantities of pottery, but little tile, plaster, or bone. Locus 6 was located in the northernmost meters of the trench, beneath Locus 4. Locus 6 overlay Locus 7.
