  • 6 cassette of tiles

Work continuing area F-J/27-28.

Continued lifting tile layer, today its eastern part, F-J/28.  Tile layer, as observed before ( see p. 139 and photo on p. 138 ) sloping from south (F/28 northern part) towards north (J/27).

Veritable, concentrated tile layer doesn\'t constitute more than a ca. 10-15 cm layer.  Under that follows a stratum (ab. 10-15 cm thick) mixed with small quantity of carbon, increasing downwards, with stray pieces of tiles and large quantity of pottery and bones (esp. much more bucchero and before) comparable to quantity found on same level in G-J/25-26 before.  In H/27, a hard light surface is struck, yellowish, sometimes turning

reddish, with small-middle size carbon patches.  This hard surface - batuto - depth ca. [no information given] cm from ground surface seems more distinct and certan than the one described before.  Stone line from H/23 found to continue in G/27.

J/27-28:  In J/27, the proper tile layer is not yet reached, as it slopes down rather tmuch towards north here, partly lying below stray stones of middle size.  J/28 contains, on same level as tile layer southwards, a new rather hard and dry soil type of light yellowish-gray color, upper surface ab. 50 cm from ground surface.

Hardly any tiles at all here, pottery very scarce, but an isolated entire or quasi-entire pot (impasto) in northeast corner.  As profile wall begins

to show up also in F/28, same earth type seems to appear here.  That might be the same hard yellowish soil as that encountered below the tile-statue fragments layer in grids D-E/29-30.  A few possible but uncertain statue fragments of small size were recovered.  Several small gorgon antefix fragments.  A nearly entire pan tile.
