June 22, 1988


A second cut was taken in meter A/ to a depth of 70 cm. 1/2 a latte box of pottery was found and consisted mainly of coarseware. One sherd of fineware was also found.

In comparison to the adjoining meters, A/9 contained very little terracotta - only about 1/4 of a cassetta of tile and terracotta pieces were found. The rocks in meters A/5-6 were cleaned down further. A piece of lateral sima cavetto was found in meter A/5 at 30 cm. Part of the lion ear is preserved. This find coincides with the rosetta and lateral sima pieces found previously.

The photographer took shots of the rocks in meter A/10 and meter A/6. The clearing in meter A/6 had revealed tile pieces under the surface rocks and resting on smaler, more rounded rocks.


The cut in meter A/9 was evened out and a second cut taken in meter A/8. This meter

also yielded a small amount of pottery and tile in comparison to surrounding meters - only 1/2 latte box of pottery and less than 1/4 cassetta of tile fragments. Cleaning continued down around the rocks in meters A/5-6 to a depth of 35 cm in A/5 and 45 cm in A/6. Meter A/6 only yielded a few pieces of coarse pottery and approx. 1/4 cassetta of tile.
