Q-R/54-55 was taken down to roughly 70-80 cm below surface level.  This cut was sterile soil.  Two pieces of terracotta were found which may be statue fragments.

Work continued at the southern end of T-22.  The lowest level in T-22 at this point is 120 cm from surface.  This level is being used to define "floor" level in our cut.  K-L/54-56 was brought to this level.  Soil here was loose, dark brown and full of terracotta and plaster.  Two latte boxes of pottery.

Washout in T-22 was removed.  Terracotta and plaster were found.  Bone and pottery are also present in small quantities.  One piece of painted pottery was fuond around G/54.


Washout cleanup was continued in T-22.  Half a rocchetto was found around I/54.  The day's work in this trench produced one latte box of assorted pottery and many architectural tile fragments.  M/54-56 was brought down to the level of T-22, 120 cm.  K/54 was also brought down to this level.

Soil in this cut was very wet.  The burn layer evident in T-22 continues here and produced much carbon.
