Work continued in locus 9 extending it 1m to the south, meters S 44-46, E 151-152. Extensive burn layer encountered on previous day continued throughout the locus, terminating approximately 50cm from the T21 west baulk. Locus 9 was excavated to the depth of 110cm bs where sterile soil was encountered. Majority of the material associated with locus 9 was recovered from the burn layer. 1/3 cassetta of architectural terracotte, including pan and cover tiles as well as plaster was found. Four full latte boxes on bone and pottery were recovered. Material included; 21 coarseware, 350 impasto,

43 redware, 1 grayware, 3 bucchero, 63 bone fragments. Also 5 pieces of cut anlter, a broze object fragment, part of creamware vellel lid (in 5 fragments), and a conical foot of an impasto vessel with decorated tondo were found.

Both tile and pottery fragments were relatively large, with well preserved bread edges.

Burn layer stratum seems to be very uneven both vertically and horizontally. Section reveals a lensing in meters S 43-44, E 151.

Area underneath locus 9 was designated locus 10 and excavated to the depth of loci 8 and 4, approximately 130cm bs. Locus 10 corresponds to area in meters S44-46, E151-152 (old grid 30 J-K).

Soil in locus 10 was sterile in S45-44, E151-152 but in S45-46, E 151-152, corresponding to the south east corner of the locusa burn layer was encountered.

All material recovered from locus 10 was recovered from this burn layer. Archaeological material included 40 tile fragments several plaster pieces and 1 2/3 latte cartons of bone and pottery. 42 bone fragements,

182 impasto, 9 coarseware, 66 redware, and 1 bucchero fragments were found. Also 5 sherds of painted pottery, creamware, were found in locus 10. Both pottery and tile were generally well preservered. In order to reveal the burn layer in locus 10, south baulk of the trench running parallel to the T21 west baulk was cut back 30cm. This area was designated locus 11, and was excavated to a depth of 125cm below surface. Material recovered included 20 worn tile fragments and 2 latte boxes of pottery. 36 bone fragments, 3 peices of antler (1 cut), 205 impasto, 45 redware, 7 coarseware, 7bucchero, and 2 grayware fragments were found. Also pithos rim, vitrified on the inside was found.
