rounded protrusion of the southern side which is thought of as a pilaster.

The cut-out akroterii on which was noticed on the crosswall between R7 and R8 was taken out.  It was found to join the piece previously excavated in Rectangle 7 (see p. 114 #4) This piece was found in R7 grid C1, thus just at the doorway of the easter foundation wall.  Joins with fragments found in other areas: Ag. 6 and 2, and T 1U.  Also T1 AD and CA1 (additions 1973).
