Baulk trim (loci 2-5) yielded 3.5 cassette of tile fragments, both pan and cover tile.  All fragments were relatively small and worn.  Also, three cavetto fragments, possibly from sime, were recovered.  These are indetified with the archaic structure (Upper Building).

Terracotta fragments recovered from the section trench (loci 6-16) wer generally in a better state of preservation and also included both pan and cover tile.  Several unusual terracotta fragments were found in the burn layer,

that included a statue strut, a rounded cover tile and a flat covertile from the ridgepole, as well as unusual piece, finished on both sides.

Plaster was found as well but was not frequent.
