A.M.

This morning a 10cm. cut was taken in meters A/1-3 extending the depth of the trench in these meters to ca. 35 to 45 cm.  The soil in meters A/1-2 was light brown in color and contained some small rocks and roots.  One quarter of a cassetta of small pieces of worn pottery, including two vitrified fragments, and one half a box of weathered impasto pottery were discovered in the light brown soil.  In addition, several large pieces of coarseware were also discovered.  The soil in meter A/3 was dark brown in color and contained many small rocks and roots.  One quarter of a cassetta of weathered tile fragments and one quarter of a box of worn impasto were recovered

from the dark brown soil.

A 10cm. topsoil cut was also taken in meter C/4, extending the trench to the northwest.  The soil in the cut was dark brown in color and contained many roots and small rocks.  Only a few small pieces of worn tile were found in the cut.

An additional 10cm. cut was also taken in meters B-C/1, extending the depth of the trench in these meters to ca. 50cm.  The soil in these meters was light brown in color and of a very loose consistency.  No material was discovered in this light brown soil.

P.M.

A 10cm. cut was begun in meter A/1 extending the depth of the trench in this meter to ca. 55-60cm.  Beginning at a dpeth of ca. 40cm. the soil in the cut became \'medium\' brown in color and in several places was tinged by a red cast created by disintigrating tile.  This medium brown soil was loose in consistency and contained sporadic concentrations of carbonized wood and disintegrated plaster.

At a depth of ca. 58cm a large pithos rim fragment blackened by burn was uncovered amidst a heavy concentration of small, worn chunks of plaster.  Several of these plaster chunks were also blackened by burn.  It is unclear at this point whether this medium brown stratum constitues a primary desposit or represents a scraping of material down the hill.  One quarter cassetta of small pieces

of worn tile and plaster chunks were recovered from the cut.  One quarter of a box of small impasto sherds were also discovered in the first 5cm. of the medium brown stratum.
