Locus 5 contained the most plaster by far, followed by Locus 6.  Locus 5 is associated with the Orientalizing fill on top of the burn layer.  It contained many pieces with at leat one flat edge.  It also contained several pieces with grooves on the, possibly pieces of the architectural plaster that held firm the ends of the roof.  A few of these pieces also showed up in baulk wall trim.

Locus 6 contained much smaller, crumblier amorphous fragments of plaster than Locus 5.

Locus 5 probably contains the pieces of plaster that were left after the destruction of the Orientalizing complexes.
