Work began this morning by tracking the bedrock with baulk hammers and towels. By mid-morning, it became apparent that it did not extend throughout the trench at its present depth. It appears to extend approximately 1 meter to the north from the NW corner and then 1.30 meters to the east, and then sharply slopes downward. Portions of the floro began to show the same characteristics of the rock packing that was present in the T9 area along the wall in Locus 5. In the afternoon work resumed with the pick axe, to bring the trench down to the level of the possible packing. After only a few centimeters, the packing did make its presence throughout the rest of the trenchy. The soil resting on top of this level was very productive in the way of ceramic, yielding about 2 latte boxes. Five special finds were also pulled from the area: painted Ionic pottery, painted Italo-Corinthian pottery, an Italy-Corinthian rim, an impasto tondo fragment and a terracotta sculptural strut fragment. 8 latte boxes of terracotta framents were also found.
After the Locus 9 soil was cleared from the packing, the next area was designated Locus 10. A pass was taken with the pick, but work was halted abruptly due to rain. One find, an impasto tondo fragment, was removed.
