The third cut into the plasterlayer in P-R 62-64 (depth app 0.90m) was completed. This area is now on the same level as P-R 65-71 (depth 0.80m) because of the slope. Very few fragments of tile or pithos were found. 1/2 cassetta of tile and plaster and 2 boxes of pottery (incl. a few bone fragments ) and 2 bronze fragments were found. The larger pieces of tile and pithos in this area were left in situ to be photographed Tuesday.

The fifth cut into the plasterlayer in P-R 65-71 was begun. This cut will take the level of the trench down to the app. level of the floor (0.90-1.00m) R 66-67 and R 69 were excavated whil Q 66-67 and R 69 were excavated while Q 66-67 were partially excavated.

In R-Q 66-67 2 cassetta of tile

(incl. several large vitrified fragments - a few of which were brought down to the magazzino), 1 1/2 cassetta of plaster (incl. several large and several vitrified fragments) adn 1 1/2 box of pottery (incl. some bone) were found. The large amount of plaster found at app. depth 1.00m in R-Q66-67 see,s to indicate the large concentration of plaster that has in earlier years been found along the building. In R 69 1/2 box of pottery and 1/2cassetta of tile and plaster were found.


The fifth cut into the plaster layer was continued in Q 67 adn QP 69. In Q 67

a concentration of burn was found at depth 1.00m.

3/4 cassetta of plaster, 1/2 cassetta of tile and 1/4 box of pottery and bone were found.

Q 69 was finished and P 69 ( beneath the stump) was begun. A concentration of pithos fragments including 4 fragments of a large rim wass found in QP 69. 1 1/3 cassetta of tile, 1 1/3 cassetta of plaster, 1 cassetta of pithos fragments and 2 boxes of mixed pottery and bone were found. In RQ 69 - like in RQ 67- large fragments of vitrified tile and plaster were found. In general the soil in this depth (0.90m-1.00m) seems to be more sandy and the color more greenish-brown.
