Metal Summary

Metals were extremely scarce in the excavations of South Flank.  Only five fragments of bronze were recovered, three of which were of amorphous shapes ( AMC V p. 65, Find #5; AMC V p. 167, Find #7; and AMC V p. 227, Find #1 ).  A portion of a semi-circular length of bronze ( AMC V p. 223, Find #7 ) and a portion of a buckle ( AMC V p. 183, Find #7 ) were the only two fragments of identifiable shape.

It should be noted here that, as with the bone, metals are unusually scarce for this orientalizing structure in comparison with the other orientalizing buildings.  Only the buckle fragment and an amorphous piece of bronze can be directly associated with the floor of the building.
