July 25, 1979


Work continued with trowels at a depth of approximately 60 cms. in meters GG-13, HH-14, and HH-15.  Meter HH-15 produced several geometric shaped ivory insets.  Notable are two fragments of worked ivory triangles, one complete diamond-shaped inset, and a fragment of an ivory disc, which is decorated with an incised line on one side.  HH-14 produced no ivory.  however, HH-14 did produce the most significant pottery find of the morning - the base and belly of a small bucchero pyris.  GG-13 also produced no ivory.

While workers continued with trowels and a seive in those areas, another worker began to excavate meter EE-16 with a pick.  Very little ivory has been found in this area - this was the case today as well.  Only one small chip of worked ivory was found in EE-16.  However, several fragments of unworked ivory or tooth were found.  It is white on the outside and blue on the inside and very dense.  EE-16 produced a tremendous amount of tile at the 40 cm. level.  Mixed with the tile was a terracotta statue fragment and the decorated rim from a large course ware vessel.
