Description/Count
description (summary) 2011-10-04 jW The projected path to the southeast of a now-removed revetment wall whose extant portion, f295 and f41 orginates to northwest. The outer edge of the extant portion of the NE wall abuts a stone escarpment, ^esc1, which protects the base from water damage. To the southeast the escarpment continues. However, here the excavated portion of the revetment wall, although continuous, diverges to the north to follow the alignment of the revetment wall sections excavated in units J1, J3, and J2. At the point of divergence a widening gap between the south face of the wall and the north edge of the stone escarpment begins. Also, at the point that the alignment between the revetment wall and its stone escarpment diverges, the wall construction technique changes. These data provide evidence that only the NW section of the original wall remains and that the SE section either collapsed or was removed to allow a newer section, f189, (which extends west from the eastern staircase in J2, through J5 and J1) to be built.

Labeling/Designation
definition (typological label) 2011-10-04 jW st-is [Input File: Vx04jW.j]

Description/Count
description (summary) 2011-10-04 jW The projection to the east of a series of flat stone slabs inclined at a 45 degree angle such that the top would have abutted the Early Dynastic revetment wall, f41, and the bottom would have abutted the stone escarpment, ^esc1. The purpose would have been to protect the wall by diverting water running down the wall face or along the inner edge of the escarpment away from the base. One stone, f293, is still in place, the others probably having been removed, when the later baquaya escarpment, ^esc2, was built. [Input File: Vx04jW.j]
