Report În perioada 13-25 august s-au continuat săpăturile în sectorul C2 (în partea de sud a Cetăţii), prin deschiderea a două noi secţiuni (S4 şi S5), paralele cu primele trei şi la sud de ele, de aceeaşi lăţime (2 m) şi de lungime 16.50 m, păstrând martorii de câte 1 m. Astfel, am descoperit un zid de piatră, aproximativ paralel cu zidul de sud al clădirii vecine (cercetată în campanile trecute) şi foarte apropiat, construit tot din piatră (calcar cochilifer) legată cu mortar. Zidul (păstrat până la înălţimea de 0.30-0.40 m) a fost la fel de îngrijit construit. Piatra este mijlocie, până la dimensiuni de 0.30/0.45 m, iar mortarul prezintă în componenţă fragmente mici de ceramică. Zidul are lăţimea de 0.70-0.77 m. După toate indiciile, zidul (fragmentul de zid) este contemporan clădirii învecinate şi, probabil, era continuat de altele, perpendiculare, în partea de sud (sectorul săpăturilor din anii ’60-’70 ai secolului trecut). Abia cercetările viitoare vor face lumină în problema celor doua clădiri.

Abstract   The archeological research in sector C of the Roman-
Byzantine quarter, in the southern part of the city Tropaeum Traiani, has occasioned the opening of four new sections (Cs17, Cs16A, S4 and S5). These were made in the area of the domus that was discovered since 2008, and other buildings located either east or west of it. The data collected were particularly high for both architectural and topographic analysis of the neighborhood, and by the discoveries of archaeological objects; pottery, lithic and metal, most of them whole
or that can be reunifi ed. Also, it was opened a new area for research on the secondary street of the city (cardo). Research continues to achieve all desired goals.
