||Above the use deposit f174, but itself a use deposit.
||Mitanni period pottery sherds.
||Mittani sherds (although mixed with some earlier sherds) indicate that this feature is one of the first Mittani deposits in the area in front of the revetment wall. May be mixed because EDIII accumulations were sloping and might be included in later features if the area was excavated in levels. Like f171 and f174 it is difficult to assign these features to an exact strata. They are at a higher elevation than some other Mittani deposits in J2, but they may actually be earlier due to the high elevations of the sloping EDIII layers underneath. It is likely that this feature belongs to sometime in the early Mittani, perhaps contemperaneous with the use after the brickfall.
||this is part of a use area south of the temple terrace wall and next to the retaining wall of the apron: upper strata. Khabur or Mittani painted jar and dep bowl rims as wel as a deep bowl with ribing below the rim that is Mittani in date. Bases include wide disk bases and a small footed base. As usual there are earlier sherds mixed into the sherds of this feature including 1 Metallic ware jar rim and Fine Chaff and Simple ware conical cup rims. The feature dates to the Mittani period (but see discussion of these two periods in the text note P912).
