June 25, 1976

Excavation continued today on cut #2.  In clearing the new wall (East wall of the room) it was noted that the foundation stones do not seem to extend to the east.  We seem to have a clean corner, the south east corner of the building.  It was also noted that the finds to the east of the east wall are of a somewhat different nature from the finds of the inside of the room, another indication that we are now moving outside the building.

The east room of the building measures 5.6 m across, while the west room measures 2.8 m, giving a ratio of 2:1.


  • Find #1
  • J 36
  • on top of south foundation wall of building
  • Rocchetto fragment


  • Find #2
  • I 36
  • yellow soil
  • human head, attachment for lateral sima

Find #2 continued: the head seems to be painted with two colors: red and white.  The red paint seems to be superimposed over the white.  The white paint seems to cover the entire head while the red paint covers the hair entirely and also covers part of the cheeks.  There are small traces of red paint on the right eye and on the underside of the chin.  It is impossible to say whether the red paint covered the entire head or whether a bichromatic effect with both red and white being used was intented. (See drawing on p. 81 for placement of red paint).
