description (summary) 2005-8-29 jW A north-south line of seven large limestone blocks along the western boundary of k12 atop compacted fill, f34. The northernmost stone had previously been designated f35 when it was the only stone showing. It is likely part of re-modeling in the Middle Mittani period which included the construction of the western part of the second apron, f10. [Input File: Q302jW2.j]

Time Sequencing
stratum (to which element belongs) 2012-9-09 jW s144J3B [Input File: W909jW.j]
stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2006-4-26 jW Same elevation as apron, f10, but sitting in first post-abandonment accumulation, f33. [Input File: Q426jW.j]
2012-10-07 jW A line of seven limestone blocks that sit in f33. Although physically separated from it they may mark the western edge of the second apron f10 [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
typological reasons for assignment 2012-10-07 jW Along with stones f35, f36 and f56 these may be the extant components of the damaged far western edge of construction related to the second apron f10. The stones roughly rest on the same early Mittani accumulations as and fall within the north and south boundaries of the second apron. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
other reasons, reservations, qualifications 2006-4-26 jW May have been a late addition that better defined the western limit of apron, much of which seems to have washed over the top of wall f11 and now forms f39 and f40. [Input File: Q426jW.j]

notes on time sequencing 2005-9-11 jW While in the process of taking test photographs, jW closely examined the section of the west baulk of this locus in the vicinity of where the line of stones, f72, was located. It clearly shows a grayish brown deposit, f34, capped in some places by bakhia and a horizontal course of bricks, sloping up from the top of the monumental wall, f11, north to the site of the BA temple. It is about one meter higher than the level of the first complete bakhia layer, f50, that we encountered. In light of the very early date (Late Chalcolithic III) for the sherds found in the accumulations comprising this ashy deposit, it is reasonable to presume that its top represents the level of the original terrace. Digging with the large pick, we failed to recognize the full impact of compacted fill, f34, during the excavations. Since the line of stones, f72, was atop this ashy deposit, we can date the placement of the stones to a period after the monumental wall, f11 was built. We cannot rule out the possibility that f72 was a late, second millennium modification to the wall, f11, and apron, f10, system. [Input File: P911jW.j]
