Description 2006-8-30vVE f583 consists of light red mud bricks that are visible in the section created by the deposits that carry the second apron f556. The mud bricks seem to be lying directly under f532 and on top of the natural accumulation f570. [Input file: Q830VE1.J / Q830VE1.-J]

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Daily 2006-8-30vVE More mud bricks became visible in the section under the bottom of the second apron and these were assigned the feature number f583 today. [Input file: Q830VE1.J / Q830VE1.-J]
Argument 2006-8-30vVE There are two options for the function of these mud bricks, I think: Either the mud bricks formed a pavement that adorned/preserved the top of the temple terrace or they were laid out as part of the construction of the secondary apron. It is very hard to argue in favor of one of these options over the other, but I would like to propose that the mud bricks were a preparation for the second apron. First of all because they seem to be directly on top of each other and secondly because the soft ashy deposits of f570 might not have been able to support the stones of the second apron f556, because they would have shifted or eroded away from underneath the structure during the winter rains.

Stratigraphic reasons 2012-9-8jW A layer of mudbricks atop Mittani accumulation f570 and upon which the stones of the second apron, f556 rest. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Other reasons 2012-9-8jW This layer of bricks forms the foundation for the stones of the second apron, f556 and f532. [Input file: W908JW2.J / W908JW2.-J]
Notes on time sequencing 2006-9-4vVE f583 is covered by the second apron f556 and is assigned by me to s12d because I think this mud brick pavement fits with the rebuilding activities shown in the creation of f591. [Input file: Q904VVE.J / Q904VVE.-J]
