Work continued through the morning defining the tile concentration across the entire floor of the trench with trowels.  By the afternoon, this work was completed, the area was drawn on a locus form, and it was designated Locus 9.  A the tile was being defined, three special finds were documented - 1. either a finial lid handle or rochetto fragment impasto ware.  2. worked bone and 3. stamped bucchero fragment.  Work resumed in the afternoon with a 10cm pick pass in approximate area of 216.5-219.5E, 2.5-6.5N, which came down unexpectedly on bedrock.  The soil appears to have been redeposited on top of the bedrock, as no sterile stratum was reached.  In fact, resting on the bedrock was special find #4 of the day, an intact tondo fragment, impasto ware.  And, 1/2 latte box of pottery was also pulled from the area.  Tomorrow, the bedrock will be tracked, but it gives every indication that it extends throughout the entirety of the trench.  Note: 11 latte boxes of tile fragments were pulled from the spread.


  • Find #1
  • 217.14E, 6.37N
  • 68.8cm B.D.
  • Locus 7
  • Finial lid handle fragment or impasto rochetto fragment.
