Description 2009-9-19lC L shaped structure found at the bottom of the ED III revetment wall (^wal l1). This structure is formed by the bonded walls ^wal l2 and ^wal l3. It is in some points poorly preserved and we can just in part assume its function. It seems having, very likely, a function similar to the ED III terrace complex. The ^wal l3, running north to south, was probably forming the western end of the plaza and, at the same time, retaining the accumulations coming from the west and probably also the water flowing. The northern wall was probably used as a revetment wall for an early terrace complex. The date for this structure is not clear, but it is possibly dating to Late Chalcolithic period as shown by the pottery recovered at its base. If we assume a similar function for the ED III and the earlier, possibly Late Chalcolithic, terrace complexes, this fact involves an extraordinary continuity of meaning and use for this sacral area.

Time sequencing
Other reasons 2012-10-15lC Only further excavation could clarify the stratigraphy and provide more datas for a safe data assignement. Following a conservative interpretation we assigne it to Ninevite 5 period, phase 3f-JPD. [Input file: V928LC.J / V928LC.-J]
