Pithos Summary

A very large amount of pithos fragments were found in P-R 62-71. All fragments (except for a few found in topsoil or yellowish-greywish layer) were brough down to the magazzino to be checked for joins (1989).

The abundance of pithos fragments were found in P-R 65-66 (depth .6-1m). At least fragments from 2 (possbily more) different types weref ound: different types of rims and a least 2 base fragments. A completed base, lying upside down, with a grain impression on the inside was found in P 65 at depth 0.95m (see HDA II p 19 #2). For drawing see HDA I p 92, photos p 98. When the pithos fragments were lifted a line of

rocks, tiles and pithos was found in P-R 66 at depth 0.8m (see drawing and photos, HDA I p140). THe pithos fragments were also found in P-R 64 (see HDAI p 212 for drawing and photo). Another large concentration of pithos was found in P-R 69-70 (depth 0.7-1 m). In this area are also fragments from at least 2 different types. The amount of pithos is less in this area than P-R 64-66. For drawing and photo see HDA I pp 92 and 98.

As can be determined from the rims, these pithoi are of the same type as those found in the upper building.
