The pottery and tile scatter covers roughly 100m E-W and 150m N-S over 4 terraced fields. There is also a fair amount of clay pipe in the fields including one full segment (L: 0.39m; Outer Diam: 0.205m; Th: 0.025m). Several of the field walls serve as terrace walls, and they are full of marble petit appareil blocks (at least 30 in all) and large worked marble blocks. These include: 2 flat blocks with anathyrosis, 2 white marble double engaged column fragments, one with a dowel hole at base (1: pres L: 1.12m; W: 0.495m; D: 0.30m; 2: visible L: 0.40m; W: 0.38m; D: 0.26m), 2 monolithic white marble column fragments, and one well-preserved Ionic column capital. Pottery at the site includes several molded bowl fragments, LCW, and LBW together with the local TMW. Occupation appears to be primarily early and imperial Roman.Finds: Systematic pottery collection on 6/12/200
