Work was continued in the whole cut. Tiles and pithos fragments appeared in the grid A-F 2. They were all fired bright red, and the soil was burnt red rather then black. As in the other cut. The tiles and pithos fragments were cleaned.

Grid E-F 4 proved productive. In a heavily burnt layer with much carbon extremely fine bucchero was found, including several spindle whorls. The cover tile noted on and in the photographs on p. 28 was lifted. The pots (probably

more than one) inside the pithos in F4 were lifted. Preserved parts are a base of heavy impasto fabric and a well fired neck of a reddish impasto (?) ware with molded bands.

In grid E-F 4 was noted how the burnt layer ends abruptly and is followed by a heavy yellowish-greenish soil which produced no finds. Since this equals the bottom of the pithos in F4 it might be considered at the moment as a floor or foundation level for Rectangle 7.

In the very corner of F4 and stiull in the burnt layer were found a small bird (a swan) [19710281] and a crouching [19710207]

lion, both in ivory which showed traces of burning. See p. 48

E-F 4 produced a quantity of lumps of bronze. The bronze is very fragile and the shape of the lumps cannot be ascertained before cleaning. A well preserved bronze pendant was found in the same area. Both the bronze and the pottery were found in the very lowest part of the burnt soil, among heavy carbon. The carbon layer continued under the pithos as exposed so far. Since the bottom fragments have not been lifted it is too early to tell if the pithos rests solely on the yellow-

greenish sterile soil.
