Interpretation This layer lies directly below 1396, orange tufo floor which was badly degraded. Soil below floor shows evidence of a second tufo stone layer to complete floor as well as a prep layer. 1417 lies above an earlier tufo floor as seem in cross section of room 6 along west edge of wall 1390. As seen in sketch, this layer may also be cut by a doorway.
