Observations Due to the irregularity of 1169, which also covers the cut it is difficult to distinguish a western edge. There is a rectangular cut in the bedrock, similar to a circular cut; 1190.
Position 2 meters northeast of 1162
Shape irregular polygon

Interpretation The position of the cut in association with a fractured section of 1187 indicates that this cut may have been used to remove portions of the wall. As more fill was removed the oddly placed rectangular cut made into both the tufo floor and bedrock seemes similar to 1190, which was circular. The distinct shape of these cuts indicates that there may have been a specific purpose behind their making - other than object removal.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
