Description 2005-8-25cVP Row of big elongated flat boulders flanking the Terrace Wall f72 along its bottom (as known till today), in k106, k9 and k10. It is formed by two features, f164, the stones more to the W, that are at a lower level, and the ones more to the E, f180, at a higher level. We still don't know its function, even if we call it ledge, footing or bench, not so much for its possible functionality as for its shape and situation adjoining a wall.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
Evolution 2006-10-4lC After three more excavation season we reached another conclusion: a6 is a bench abutting the base of the Revetment Wall, interpreted as a curtain wall (^cur t3) or similar typology of structure. The date is not clear yet because the accumulation abutting and covering it area clearly Mitanni, but the big stones sits on top of clearly EDIII material. This material is in the middle between a6 ( f180) and the lower and earlier flat large stone belonging to f164, interpreted as an early stone escarpment. [Input file: V114LC.J / V114LC.-J]

Other reasons 2006-10-4lC The chronology of this installation is unsure. This is also due to the water erosion and many of the J1 elements have been used for long periods. We often find Mitanni material right on top of early Third Millennium material.... [Input file: V114LC.J / V114LC.-J]
