Since we last talked about the square, we've not made much progress (because there wasn't much left to do). We have M11 uncovered to pavers and to the monumental steps in almost the whole square. A bit of the putative Byzantine flooring surface is left, and my squaremates took some of that out while I was out with the plague on Tuesday morning. In N11, we took the trench down to bedrock, exposing the putative Byzantine wall which now acts as a separator between the two squares. In the lower courses of the wall, we found a small corinthian column capital made of limestone, and a beautiful small marble capital too!
