Rectangle 8 E 1-4

July 27, 1971

Photographs taken.  Work was continued in the cut E 1-4.  The ground level continues to rise toward the south, and the depth down to the floor level of Rectangle 8 is therefore much less than in the previous cuts.

Finds were scarce- 1 box of tiles, a few bronze slivers, ivory fragments- all from grid 3-4.

The pise wall was outlined in the cut D4.  The profile shows that the stones of the foundation wall appear higher up than in the previous cut.  This is due to the sloping ground level.

The crosswall between Rectangle 7 and 8 was cleaned carefully.  It can now be seen how the outline of the wall is the constructed with great care.  The edge of the wall is formed by stones and tile fragments placed in a straight line.  Edges of pan tile seem to indicate the lines.

Tiles have already been lifted from this wall.  What remains now is a layer of mixed stones, pithoi fragments, and tiles.  Part of a cut out akroterion is lying next to a pan tile.
