July 7, 1987


The fourth cut in MNO/72-77 to ca.70cm was continued, the concentration being specifically in M/72-75.  The soil continued to be rocky, rooty and without many finds.  Several flakes of bronze, a few pieces of light blue ivory, and four (?) seeds were found.  Pottery finds were minimal-some small pieces of bucchero, but no recognizable shapes.  Bone was also abundant.  Tile and plaster finds were also minimal.  Shell was also found (M/72).

In LM/78-81, the layer ca. 100cm below surface was completed.  The surface was full of projecting tile fragments, indicating that the next level may be part of a tile fall.  A few rocks were visible along with pithos fragments, plaster chunkcs with reed marks, and terra cotta pieces.

Before the level was completed, finds consisted of pieces of bone, a small piece of light blue ivory (L79) and a few pieces of assorted pottery.


The level ca. 100cm below the surface in LM/78-81 was recorded and the surface pieces lifted, to continue the section another 10 cm below the surface.  Ivory was found again in L/81 and work conitnued with the dental picks.  A burnt slingstone was found in M/78-79 (border). In the vicinity a large piece of corroded unidentified bronze was found.

Tiles, both pan and cover as well as ridge pole fragments were abundant, along with assorted pottery pieces.  One interesting piece of flange from M/79 was kept; otherwise they were left on the tile pile.  Plaster pieces continued to be recovered as well, and pithos fragments also.

In MNO/74-77, the fourth cut was continued.  Tile and terra cotta and plaster fragments were recovered in great numbers; pottery fragments were also numerous and of assorted types.  A few scattered flakes of bronze were also found.  A piece of lateral sima was also recovered (O/76).
