Interpretation It abuts a thicker wall on the western side. This thick wall appears to be of a later construction since it does not align. For that reason, SU 1390 is likely the southernmost wall of the structure. 1390 also appears to be bound to a north-south wall which is partially covered by a tufo floor (SU 1396).
