Work continued with mestilinas in meter L(M)/65 and a small portion of K/65.  The cut to 110 cm still remains incomplete.  This area requires very slow excavation due to the concentration of ceramics in this area.  At slightly deeper areas in this section, the soil changes from the medium orangy brown soil with plaster and carbon inclusions to a darker brown burned soil, however this transition is still unclear since the meter is not fully excavated.  Several important finds have already surfaced in this area of orangeware concentration, however all ceramics and substantial finds are being drawn on a plan of L(M)/65 as they are excavated before removal.  Most interesting from this days excavation was a fragmentary fenestral finial(#2) from the western corner of L(M)/65 and a nearly complete fenestrated finial with a large portion of the lid body attached from the eastern corner of L(M)/65, which was upside down in the medium orangy brown soil.  From depth of 110cm on L(M)/65, an unusualrim with a reised edge was found(#19) and is plotted on the drawing on pg. 5.  Several pieces of triple incised orangeware were found as well as a complete, bent bronze nail(#22).




  • Find 21
  • L(M)/65
  • 100 cm
  • Stamped orangeware wtih reverse side burned (lamp frag?)



(When cleaning the dirt from the interior of the following finial, 4 circular pieces of ceramic were found inside the pieces.  All four pieces preserve elements of an asterisk stamp)


  • FInd 24
  • L(M)/65
  • 109 cm
  • Orangeware lid with attached fenestrated finial

Due to the extremely fugitive nature of the paint preserved on this piece of akroterion, it was decided to resketch the piece illustrating the preserved paint before the process of fading advances too far.

#15 L(M)/67, 109cm, excavated on Monday, July 20, see p. 231 in TT II 1992 , this is not a continuation of the find list from 7/21/92!

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.
