The excavation of locus 4 was completed.  Approximately one bowl (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments was recovered.  Nineteen pieces of bone were found and 47 pottery sherds.  One small fragment of bronze was found along with three pieces of slag.  Four objects were made special finds (#1: sherd with slip; #2:  sherd with slip; #3:  sherd with slip; #4:  Bucchero sherd with incisions).


  • Find #1
  • 177.2-E/50.8-S
  • 27.25 m. above abs. elev.
  • Locus 4
  • Sherd with slip

Locus 6 was established directly beneath locus 4.  Photos were taken.

Opening depths of locus 6:

  • 176.8-E/49.3-S = 27.30 m. above absolute elevation
  • 176.4-E/49.3-S = 27.23 m. above absolute elevation
  • 177.0-E/52.0-S = 27.21 m. above absolute elevation
  • 177.0-E/52.1-S = 27.23 m. above absolute elevation

  • 180.0-E/52.2-S = 27.29 m. above absolute elevation
  • 180.0-E/49.3-S = 27.31 m. above absolute elevation

The soil of locus 6 is mottled with black, white, orange and red specks.  A pick pass was done over most of the trench, going down approximately 2-5 cm.  One bowl (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments mixed with plaster was found.  Approximately six small bronze fragments were found along with two pieces of slag.  Approximately a dozen fragments of bone was found and 1/2 latte box of pottery sherds.  A piece of bronze slag was made a special find (#5).

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
