Scanning is essential to this study season. Today I completed all the scanning of the church and everything west, north, and south of it. The House of Tyche is the final scanning project.
In addition, this study season will open several probes. We opened the first today in Cardo 3 North, north of the apse and next to the blocked doorway in the west wall of the House of Tyche. We restricted our work today to the area south of a single line of limestone blocks that were part of a blockage of the small cardo when the complex was decommissioned. As these stones are floating, they will be removed.
Digging again will lead to more answers and possibly questions.
