The fourth excavation day was very productive.
Two other bronze coins were recovered; one is very neat and bears a helmeted head of Roma or Minerva and the prow of a galley. The coin is dated at the end of the 3rd century BC, and you can find a nice picture here.
In the meantime, the 2019 excavation area was cleared from the overgrown vegetation and the southern wall was fully exposed. During this activity, a good concentration of kitchenware and animal bones was found, together with a loom weight. Another wall was identified (USM 22), running E-W. These additions help to better define the plan of the complex that in the coming days will be fully exposed.
Saturday will be a special day at Podere Cannicci. Stay tuned to discover what our archaeologists have in mind!
