The entire trench was now declared locus 8 . It has these opening co-ordinates and depths:
NW = 176.7-E/49.3-S = 26.89 m. above absolute elevation
SW (1) = 176.2-E/52.0-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation
SW (2) = 177.0-E/52.0-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation
SW (3) = 177.0-E/52.4-S = 26.91 m. above absolute elevation
SE = 180.0-E/52.4-S = 26.92 m. above absolute elevation
NE = 180.0-E/49.3-S = 26.89 m. above absolute elevation
The color of the locus is dark brown with several good size stones in the eastern sector (ranging up to approximately 35 cm. across the longest dimension). Excavation occurred mostly in the eastern half of the locus, going down approximately 5 cm. Some trowelling and brushing occurred in the western half. Approximately 4 bowls (24 cm. in
diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments along with some plaster were recovered. Approximately 6 1/2 latte boxes of pottery sherds and approximately 2 1/2 latte boxes of bone fragments were found. Two special finds were made (#1: Sherd with incisions; #2: Rim sherd with black slip). Also a fragment of pithos rim was found.
Today an extension of T-30-G was made to the west (i.e. Western Extension). Balk cleaning occurred at approximately 172.5-173.5-E (wall facing south), removing a small triangular package of earth (extending approximately 50 cm. from the south face) down to a large stone that may have been used as a column pad. This stone is approximately 26.90 m. above absolute elevation. Approximately 2 bowls (24 cm. in diameter, 7 cm. in depth) of terracotta fragments were recovered. Approximately one latte box of pottery sherds and bone was found.
