Daily Log

July 16, 1998


Photographs were taken from both east and west (in black and white). Depths and general location of terracotta tiles in trench were recorded.

Removal of tiles began throughout the trench. The tiles were quite fragmentary and also very friable. The tiles appear to lie in a horizontal fashion across the trench floor, and consist of mainly pan tile fragments. Work was accomplished in meter E186-188/S49-50.

Both terracottas and ceramic was recovered in this morning's work, and an accoun of this material will be listed in today's P.M. entry.


Continued to level trench floor and remove terracotta tile from meters E186-188/S49-50. Tiles are almost wholly pan tiles and bery fragmentary, yet some fragments measured 20-25 cm in length/width.

In this work a total of 648 terracotta tiles were recovered and those which had joins were counted as one. 40 ceramic pieces were uncovered, the majority consisting of impasto and coarseware. Also 2 pieces of bone were found and a fragment of painted ionic pottery (Find #1)

Work for the entire day was confined to the layer of terracotta, thus all of the material was designated as part of locus 4n.
