Time sequencing
Strata within phase 2009-9-14cJC s650J2B
Stratigraphic reasons 2009-9-14cJC This feature is part of the monumental access that was constructed together as part of the major construction dated to s650 s650J2B. It is bonded to the apron (^ap r1) and the eastern flanking wall (^wal l2). The apron is constructed together with the revetment wall (^wal l1) and therefore all these constructions are assigned to the same strata.
Typological reasons 2009-9-14cJC Materials against the lowest step of this staircase were part of the German excavation of the area. When considered with the other features that are part of the monumental access it is clear that the materials at the base of the apron and revetment wall are both EDIII, which indicates that presumably the materials at the base of the staircase would be EDIII as well.
