The stumps in P 65-66; P 67; R 70 and Q 71 were removed.

The cut (app. depth 0.40m) in yellowish grey stratum started Wednesday was finished. App. the same amount of tile, plaster and pottery was found: 1 1/2 box of mixed pottery *impasto, coarse ware, bucchero ware), 2 casttes of tile, a few fragmetnts of plaster plus a few fragments of bone and 1 fragments of a sea-shell.

The next cut was begun. The soil is now changing to a brownish soils stratum mixed with plaster and occasionally small bits of charcoal (app. depth of upper level of this stratum 0.5m). Finds of pottery and tile/plaster increased. 1 small bronze frag. was found.


The first cut into the plaster layer was almos finished. The western end of the trench (R-P 65-68) was still basically the yellowish-grey stratum which accounts for the fact that most of the pottery and the tile/plaster were found in the eastern end of the trench (R-Q 68-71). In this end were also found a number of heavily burnt tile and a piece of vitrified plaster was found in P 66-67 (both app. depth 0.50m).

A number of sea-shells/sea-snails were found throughout the trench (app. depth 0.50m) as well as a number of bone fragments.

2 boxes of mixed pottery (impasto, coarse ware and bucchero), among which a conical foot fragment (find #2); 2 casettes of tile and 1/2 casetta of plaster were found. The stump in P 70 was removed.
