Photos taken. {not included}

Continued trowelling down through the darker brown, carbon-included soil (Locus 32), attempting to trace the extent of the pinkish plaster layer and to locate the orientalizing floor level whereever the plaster does not overlay the floor.

As this work will continue in the afternoon, pottery and terracotta quantities will be recorded at that time.

This morning's finds included a bucchero plate fragment decorated with a roulette stamp (31); a flat piece of bronze (#2); a bucchero rim fragment with cut out decoration (#3); a buccheroid handle fragment (#4); a neck fragment with painted decoration (#5); and a fragment of incised impasto (#6).

P.M.

Continued work trowelling through the dark brown soil (Locus 32).  Most of S23/E138 was lowered to a depth of 70-72 cm b.d., along with adjacent portions of S23/E139 and S24/E138.  The majority of the area in S24/E138-139 was lowered to approximately 65 cm b.d.  The pinkish plaster seems to be confined to the southern half of these meters.

Today's work in Locus 32 produced 4 1/4 latte boxes of pottery and bone, including a number of heavy coarseware fragments and impasto rim sections.  1/2 of a cassetta of tile fragments, both pan and covertile, were also recovered.  Also found were a bronze fibula (#7), an inscribed bucchero fragment (#8), a brazier fragment (#9), a fragment of painted pottery (#10), a ridged impasto rim (#11), and a buccher tondo fragment with incised decoration (#12).
