Excavation continued in the northwest corner of the room.


  • Find 1
  • Grid 1D
  • Brown earth stratum
  • Long bronze pin, rectangular in cross section, 2 pieces


  • Find 4
  • Grid 6B
  • Brown earth stratum
  • Two sherds, fine yellow ware with decoration

In Grids 5C and 6C, a large carbon deposit was found, similar to the one found in the southwest corner of the room.  Approximate depth of this deposit was c. 80 cm.  Among the carbon were numerous pieces of buchero and several "Italo-Corinthian" sherds.

At the same time that the northwest corner was excavated, tests for the foundation walls were dug in the southeast corner of the room (Grids 1I-J).  Noticeably, there was no stone fill in the southeast corner.  Rather, the walls in this corner were surrounded by a rich brown earth.  No tile or pottery came from this corner.

Boxes of tile: 1/2

Boxes of pottery: 1 1/2
