1/2 cassetta tile C/10

1/4 cassetta tile C/7

A topsoil cut was begun in meter C/10. The cut measures 90 cm in depth from the surface of the southern baulk and 25 cm in depth from the present level of the A:B terrace above. Finds from this meter include a small metal coin that is modern and some small fragments of bone or ivory.

A topsoil cut was also bgun in meter C/7. Only about 5 cm of soil was removed from this meter to level it off with the vertical slope of the hill and, thus, to make it easier to join the cut to that in C/10. An akroterion fragment was found in this meter. This find coincides with the area that previous architectural elements were found in. A small lump of bronze was also found in this meter.

Part of the morning was also spent attempting to move the massive rock in meters A/7-8. However, the rock went much deeper than it appeared to and will have to remain.

1/2 latte box pottery.

A first cut was taken in meter C/9 to a depth of 95 cm from the surface of the southern baulk. The cut measured 30 cm in depth from the leve of the A/B terrace. There were no finds in this meter. The soil changed from the topsoil of meter C/10 to the more yellow, clay-like laye of soil. We began to hammer and meste the large stump in meters B/6 and C/6.

Work ended at 4 p.m. for a lecture.
