Interpretation dividing wall between rooms 3 and 6, the crushed tufo floors 1198 (room 6) and 1244 (room 3) seem to be in phase with this wall. The overall impression is, that the wall was constructied at a later time, since it doesn't fully keep the eastern limits of the building but extends a little further east (abuts wall 1309).
