The room, called bulding B for convenience, has been defined. For the rough sketch see p. 152 , for the inner wall face and the covering agger stones, see p.158 . The agger stones, removed by excavating infrom the west and removing stones which rested on earth mixed with tiles, pealed off easily. The wall, rather unregularly built, was found to rest on bed rock for part of its length. Its western, or outer face, is rather jagged. The wall measures 1.20m thicknesss and this resembles the eastern wall of hte same room.

Rough plan p.169 . The NW corner of the structure is yet to be clarified.This will be done when a cut is extended along the edge of the agger to the north.


  • agger 6 "building A" west of foundation wall
  • bucchero fragment with palmette

Agger 5 Building A (see p.152)

The room was rather easy to define because, for some reason the agger cap sotnes were not mixed with the western wall except in the area from 2-C to D. Here a few stones protruded. A number of bucchero fragments, one with a palmette, came immediately to the west of the wall. They may be part of  the agger fill rather than debris used to fill in around the foundations.
