July 8, 1988


The third cut into the plaster layer (depth 0.70m) was continued. Q 71 was finished. Because of the fairly large amount of tiles found in P-R 70 tiles area was cleaned with mestilina. The tiles here do not seem to be part of a tile fall since they are rather small and randomly spaced. A large pithos rim (?) was found in Q70. This and most of the tiles were left in situ. App 1/2m of P-R 70 was cleaned. 1 1/2  box of pottery, 1/3 cassetta of plaster adn afew small fragments of tile were  found. 1 frag. of bronze was found. P-R 67 was taken down to 0.70m. In this meter a straight line of rocks and tiles (mostly pantiles) was found. The orientation of this is app. the same as the orientation of the Upper Building. The width of the line varies from app.

0.20m in R to app. 0.40m in Q-P. The line seems to be continuing into the baulk (0.67). It may have been part of a drain system.

Part of the line (R + part of Q 67) was photographed in the morning. 1 1/2 box of pottery and 2/3 cassetta of plaster were found.
