Daily Log

July 6, 1971

Photographs taken. Work continued starting at either end of the cut, in E1 and B1.

Except for some slivers of bronze and a fine spindle whorl (with a zig zag pattern) little was found. Few sherds compared to the previous cuts. Tiles and pithoi fragments were lifted.

In clearing grid B1 it became clear that the bedrock on which the bronze cauldron rested in A2 extend. To the east, all the way up to the eastern wall.

Part of at least two fine






bucchero (?) pots were lifted in B1.

The foundations of the crosswall between R7 and R8 were cleaned. They are uneven, with pieces of tiles and pottery mixed in. In grid F3, at the lowest part, right on top of the stratum with tufa (str. E) several good decorated bucchero sherds were found, also two slivers of ivory.
