Daily Log


June 23, 1987


The floor of the south east building was cleared for the first two hours.

Excavation continued in sections MNO/71-77 and LM/78-81, following the work of the past two days.

In N/75 a piece of lateral sima was recovered.  Otherwise section MNO/71-77 yielded assorted pottery fragments, including pithos, sling stone-like stones, (3) plaster pieces, both large and small, and tile (3/4 cassetta).

In LM/78-81, excavation continued to uncover the lavel ca. 80-90 cm below surface and to isolate

the artifacts.  More bronze flakes were discovered (L/78) as well as a piece of Corinthian or Italo-Corinthian pottery (L/78).  The latter was left in situ.  Plaster fragments were also recovered, again with flat edges and reed marks visible.  In L/79 the soil was full of chalky material.


Excavation continued in both areas.  The second cut in MNO/71-77 was completed, revealing an area full of rocks and file fragments, including an oversized flange piece which may belong to a sima (M/75, 30-40 cm).  Part of the stump in MNO/74-75 was removed.  Pottery finds were mostly confined to [?] and oragne ware.

In section LM/78-81, work continued from the morning.  The piece of Corinthian pottery was removed to protect it from breaking.  A buccheroid foot was also found (L/79) but otherwise pottery finds were minimal.  In all, the area displayed a high concentration of tile and pithos fragments in L/78 80-90cm below.  Rocks, terra cotta pieces, plaster and carbonized material--wood especially, as well as some bone were also prominent.  The area was also

cleaned down and photographed.
