Daily Log

June 17, 1971

The tiles and pithos fragments that had been cleaned were lifted in grid B4 and E4. Stray pieces were lifted from all over the cut. Concentration and relative depth served as a guideline for leaving fragments in situ till they can be further exposed. Such concentrations occur in grid A4- in a heavy carbon layer- in D4 and in F4. Pithos fragments that are standing up can be seen in A3 and C3- possibly they belong to pithos in situ.

Grid F4 shows how a cover tile and an impasto vase are placed inside and over a  pithos.


  • B4
  • pantile with incised letter, fragment


Only the lower part of the pithos is preserved. The base wall will serve as a depth indicator for the moment.

A bucchero finial with a knob and two heads (Daedalic) was found in E4 together with fragments of two similar heads. The finial and one head was found to join with a handle that was found previously. (19710564)

A pan tile fragment with an incised alpha was lifted in B4. (19710231)

The cut A-F 2 was opened up. Stratum A, that is the pavement, was here better preserved and represented a layer or scalzo which was taken off separately.


  • Rectangle 7-A2-Str. D
  • Bucchero plate, rim fragment



Tiles appeared immediately below str. A in a layer that was not as burnt as str. D in the previous cut. The soil is here red rather than black especially in grid B 2-3. This red soil had already been noted in grid C3.

Very few bones were collected. Small fragments of bronze were found- one with a circle or guilloche pattern. .
