T1 AN Because of the heavy amount of sima fragments along the southern edge of the trench, especially in grid E-G 5, the section in T1 AL, which earlier was defined as an area with scattered stones, was excavated. The line of sizeable stones in the western part of the trench, lying over the wall, see p. 209 , were left in grid A-C. Under, and mixed in with the scattered stones were a vast amount of sima fragments and banquet frieze, and excavation was undertaken in the whole of the 2nd extension of T1 AN and T1 AL up to the cross wall. In grid G5 simas with about half of the back part were excavated, all lying together

in layers with stones mixed in. The second crosswall was cleaned and it seemed that the walls form a quadrangle. Because of the sloping ground it is however difficult to establish the edges towards the north. Under the level with sima fragments burnt soil began to appear, with pottery, tiles, and plaster, of the same kind as described on p. 151-155 and in T S1. As mentioned before stones were mixed in with the sima fragments in grid G and these stones seem to form a line, ca. 0.60m wide, running N to S, parallel to the walls going N and at right angles to the crosswall. It is not clear if these stones belong

(or belonged) to a wall. No floor level could be established as the ground slopes and only the level with sima fragments was excavated. As seen in the profile in tr. T1 AN, , a layer of red soil was noticed in T1 AN, grid A 3-4. It consists of a fine powdert soil, which is bright red. It was noticed in an area about 1m squared on the ground, less in the profile.
