In grid G1 and 2 there was a \'\'pocket\'\' which produced 3-4 boxes of tiles and several pieces of lateral sima, both the strigils and the sides with the scars from the broken off heads, rosettes, and waterspouts, some of them attached to the bottom and the side with a finished edge. Two heads were excavated, one rosette and part of one waterspout.
