A. M.

Proceeded west in meter H-43 with mestilinas, up to the edge of the stone concentration.  The stones appear to rest on top of the galestra-like soil with the burn layer present between the stones.  The concentration will be drawn later.  Found 1/16 cassetta of plaster and tile fragments as well as 1/8 latte box of pottery and bone.

Continued cut in H-I/48-47 to approx. 140cm.  Soil in H-I/48 was the burn layer w/galestra-like soil beginning at approx. 135cm.  In H-I/47, at its east edge, began a layer of sandy-gravel soil about 2 or 3cm under the burn layer.  the galestra-like soil then reappeared towards the bottom of the cut.  Not much material was found in either soil.  Recovered 1/3 cassetta of tile and plaster, 2 1/4 latte boxes of pottery and bone, 2 pieces of amorphous bronze, and 1 piece of heavily vitrified terraotta.  Also found 3 pieces of painted creamware, finds #1, 4, and 5, find #2, a piece of incised impasto; and find #3, an incised rim fragment.
