Description 2005-8-29sC f239 is a bricky melted surface in k101. It covers almost all the unit (excluding the NW corner of the square where a thick red accomulation layer have been found, and defined as f244). It is characterized by a very compact surface with a very fine and soft texture and by ash lenses spread all over the surface. Where the feature is characterized by the presence of melted bricks it is brown in color, while, where the ash lenses are present, it is dark brown/greyish in color.

Recovery/Assignment and the Record
C99.NRecovery 2005-8-29sC f239 is characterized by a very irregular course; in general it slopes toward the south area of k101, but it have been noticed also four different elevations in the N to the S area of k101. The top elevation (in the N area) is m3953 +12 -169, while the bottom (aproximately 1m from r709) is m3953 +5 -169. The same occur for the bottom elevation.The bottom elevation is m3953 +7 -173 in the N area, while on the S is m3953 +3 -173.

Phase to which stratum belongs 2011-11-11cJC h3nJ2B
Stratigraphic reasons 2008-3-5pC elevation
Typological reasons 2008-3-5pC under h23- h23MZA layers
Other reasons 2011-5-16cJC Sloping accumulation in front of revetment wall. Unclear if it is from the same stratum as the first sloping accumulations associated with the revetment wall. Mixed metallic ware and ED sherds.
2011-9-30cJC This feature was assigned to s650 s650JPC, indicating it was contemporary with the building of the revetment wall, but upon further review it is unclear if it is associated with the revetment wall ( f128) or the is after the construction of the flanking wall ( f127) which is currently dated to s630 s630JPC. The types of contact with these two walls were not recored. See v105 which does not show the type of contact clearly but may indicate that the feature was after the construction of both walls. As of 2011 the q-lots have not been analyzed.
2011-11-21cJC Accumulation after the first construction, probably goes under f127, see v105.
