Work supervised by J.M. in the absence of L.R.L.

We work in rect 22 quadrants C-E 2-3 digging toward galestra and begin cut 4 in T25.

In R22 the brown to dark brown soil is flecked with numerous carbonized bits, and we discover carbonizd "bean" fragments as well as 5 cartons of pottery.  Pottery includes fragments of coarseware, thin, well-preserved bucchero and an orangish ware preserving traces of red paint.  Some bone and a trace of bronze occur as well and some bits of shell.  A series of large stones, aligned roughly east-west now bisects R22.  They are left in situ for further investigation.

In T25 cut 4 begins at the north end of the trench y-alpha 12-15 moving south.  Soil varies from yellow to brown and contains numerous fragments of coarseware, bucchero, and tile.  Some bronze slag and bone also occur.


  • Find # 2
  • R22 C-D/2-3
  • Inscribed base fragment, found in cleaning








Again J.M. for L.R.L.

We work in R22 C-D 2, the dark brown soil is flecked with carbon and yields two cartons of impasta, some bucchero and occasional pieces of orange fineware with possible traces of paint.  A packing of large stones is further exposed in this area, no finds recorded.
