This morning the trench was brought down about 10 cm.  A buccheroid tondo was recovered, along with large amounts of pythos fragments.


THis afternoon a strangely shaped piece of architectural or decorative terracotta came up, broken iin several fragments, from the northwest side of the trench.  It is very thick, but not very wide.  It was found very close to a large pythos fragment from this morning.  A lighter colored soil, filled with white, chalky inclusions, and much more solid, began to appear.  It was much more sterile than Locus 3.  It will be designated Locus 4.


Locus 3:

  • 123 pieces of terracotta
  • 94 ceramic fragments
  • 23 pieces of bone
  • 1 tondo ( Find 4 )
  • 7 pieces of unusual terracotta with finished edges ( FInd 5 )
