Work continued in Trench 18, the north extension.  In the morning, two men continued to take down the dike in grids J-M/30.  From the topsoil and brown soil stratum came 1/4 cassette of coasre pottery and 1 cassette of tiles discarded.  In the yellow soil stratum in grids L/30, a complete pithos rim (23 cm in diameter) and part of the pithos wall were found.  The lower half of the yellow stratum produced bucchero fragments and a rectangular piece of iron (1/4 cassette of pottery).
