Summary (English)

  • The investigation continued in various sectors, some of which were partially excavated in previous years. The trench inside the cella of the west temple (A7) was deepened until it reached the substantial clay layer already identified by core sampling last season.

    Work also continued in trench D10, ex sector VIII of the old excavations. Here, a large amount of time was dedicated to documenting the sections and the revision of what had been done during previous interventions. A number of layers were then removed with the aim of preparing the area for further in-depth excavation next season. This intervention made it possible to clarify and link the data from the Gjerstad excavations and subsequent excavations with the new evidence in the western sector of the podium.

    In trench F14, situated between the two visible stylobates, the excavation of the stratigraphy underlying two large travertine blocks, removed for safety reasons during the previous campaign, was completed.

    In trench F19, south of the southern stylobate, a floor of capellaccio marble slabs came to light beneath about 40-50 cm of modern fill. The interventions were intensified in the southern part of the podium, where the excavation of D11 continued with the result that the walls of the imperial taberna, situated in the podium’s south-eastern corner, were identified.
    Three adjacent trenches were dug in the central part of the podium, in area where patches of the capellaccio paving were missing.
    In all trenches, pits were emptied that were probably the result of Colini’s excavations, and the stratigraphy preserved in their sections was examined.

    Another trench was opened in the south-western part of the podium (F20), also in correspondence with a gap in the paving. The modern stratigraphy was removed (material from the old excavations) revealing several blocks of capellaccio , which appeared to constitute a western limit of some sort that remains to be defined.
    The cleaning and analysis of the stratigraphy and later interventions was undertaken in sector E18 and the area south of the temple podium.
