Interpretation Eastern wall of a building which seems to consist of walls 1183, 1308, 1250, 1209. In terms of sequence the walls 1183 and 1185 seem to be the oldest parts of the structure. Of the retaining wall in the north SU 1308 are only a cut into the bedrock and maybe a few blocks deeper down preserved. The southern end of this structure is hidden under the southern edge of the excavation area.
