Summary of the Cuts
Cut 1: 0-10 cm.
Tile: 1/4 cassetta
Cut 2: 35-45 cm
Tile: 6 cassetti (plus)
Pottery: 4 boxes (plus)
Soil: In general, meters V-W/62-64 soil was loose, reddish-brown in color with a light plaster content and included carbon material, glass slag, large unburned plaster and terracotta fragments. To the west, the soil is brown with little carbon, plaster or other extensive materials present. By meters T-U/62-64 the soil is uniformly brown, fairly loose with scattered small stones and roots. The northern meters exhibit increasing roots and carbon material including some large pieces.

Terracotta statue fragment
Bronze sheet fragments (approximately 3)
Terracotta fragments (approximately 3)

Alabastron neck fragment
General: Finds, pottery and tile are more concentrated to the east: particularly in the southern meters. Despite the increasing of carbonification to the north, little of the pottery, tile, or terracotta is so damaged.
Cut 3: 70-80 cm
Tile: 7 cassette (plus)
Pottery: 5 boxes (plus)
Soil: Dark red loose soil with a high plaster content dominates the eastern metres particularly to the south. This soil and plaster thins to the west until in U/62 it becomes a loose yellow clay with negligible pottery, plaster, tile or stone. A dark burn layer is present in the red soil to the east until T/63-64.
