The remaining few centimeters of the yellowish brown soil (Locus 43) was removed in the north portion of the trench.  No material was produced.  At a depth of 65-67 cm and rising to 55 cm at the southern end of the baulk, the darkish carbon-included soil was exposed.  This soil will be considered as part of Locus 42, to which it is immediately adjacent, since very little of the Locus 42 soil had been removed to date.

Work began removing the darker brown soil (Locus 42), lowering the area of meters E136, E137, S23, and the northern 50 cm of S24 to a depth just a few centimeters above the orientalizing floor level.  This work produced 4 1/2 latte boxes of pottery and bone and 153 tile fragments, including several sections of pan and covertile.  Also found were an incised bucchero rim fragment (#1), a terracotta fragment with a ridged interior (#2), 3 fragments of ridged impasto (#3, 5, 7), a rochetto head (#4), and a painted double rope handle fragment (#6).
