Semicircular cut in bedrock, probably representing a foundation trench cut for a wall, the stones of which are only very partially preserved (SU1206). This wall was mostly dismantled when the area was leveled for construction of the surrounding structure, since the leveling fill of the room also filled part of this cut. The cut appears to continue into room 2 to the north and possible outside the structure to the east and south.
