Observations Special finds: votive vassel and iron plate
Position South western cornerish, past 2010 excavation limit
Shape Half oval
Layer Surface gradual slope down to the south (upper surface); gradual upward slope to the south (lower limit)
Layer Inclusion Observations cluster of metal towards center
Layer Thickness Observations decreases as we approch southern limit
Layer Interface Sharp
Finds Observations Thin-walled ware: one sherd with barbotine. Painted fineware: one wall has scale pattern. Metal: includes nail shaft, buttons, and slag. SU probably dates ca. third to second century BC. The sole sherd of terra sigillata is almost certainly intrusive; no diagnostic thin-walled ware. Good diagnostics ca. third century BC.
Ceramics Observations Many sherds are quite small; most are poorly preserved with worn surfaces.

Interpretation yellowish accumulation over tufa floor and over tile deposit along western limit, high frequencies of pottery and other debris suggest gradual accumulation. Originally we expected cut SU 1220 to extend to the edge of SU 1320, but it ended shortly to the south of our western most SU limit

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
