Observations D434 bronze coin (but actually in adjacent modern fill 1444)
Position southwest, in/near room 6, past 2010 excavation limit
Shape oblong blob (irregular), round
Layer Surface small rubble in southern end
Layer Interface Sharp
Non-Soil Sample Type Charcoal
Finds Observations Metal: small pieces. Layer is probably ca. -150 to -100, based on black gloss diagnostic. Thin-walled ware not datable.

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.
