consisted mainly of pithoi fragments.  Small bits of charcoal were present, but not to a great degree.  Pithos, bucchero, and bone were encountered in Z/64-66.  Note that a bronze projectile point was uncovered with the topsoil in meter X-65, one of the few ever found at this site.  It is thought that this artefact was somehow brought to this high level by erosion, since very little else was found in the topsoil.  Stamped buchero, however, was found.  A large plaster piece, ~20x13x10cm, with two edges flat, was found at ~15cm in Z-65.  Two cassette of tile and two boxes of pottery were found.

The baulk between meters O/P 82-77 was also taken down to the level of soil covering the floor (~50-60cm).  Four cassette of tile were found and one of pottery.
