Description 2006-8-20vVE Feature f553 was opened when the third step (from the top) of the second apron f556 had been uncovered while excavating f550. In effect, it is a continuation of f550. This redesignation was done for stratigraphic control (intended for the pottery that could date the end of the use of the apron) rather than a change in the deposits. However, just below the top of f553 in the SE corner of k107 a hard natural floor surface was found at elev.(3615 +73 -163). It was only very partially preserved and therefore we decided not to start a new feature. [Input file: Q820VE.J / Q820VE.-J]

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-9-8jW Natural late Mittani accumulation covered by accumulation 550. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Typological reasons 2012-9-8jW Pottery and bones were found within this feature but not analyzed. The few items were ubiquitous. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Other reasons 2012-9-8jW The excavator noted that this accumulation was a continuation of f550 above it. However the lower top and bottom elevations indicate that f553 was deposited earlier. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE The accumulations of f552 and f553 start to cover the lower steps of the second apron. The apron remains visible, however. These deposits must then have accumulated at (the end) of the use of the second apron, i.e. s11, perhaps s11b. [Input file: Q904VVE.J / Q904VVE.-J]
