description (summary) 2006-10-09 jW One of a number of large limestone blocks placed along the top of the revetment wall, f11, in k109 as a conseqence of a major renovation that included a new wahal glacis system, f123 and f152. It sat in an accumulation, f247, above an earthen floor, f370, that covered both the wall top and the plaza to its south. Since the mound was undoubtedly still sacred, the stones probably served as a reminder of the wall system before the plaza filled up and the wall was covered. We often informally refer to them as "memory stones." [Input File: Qx09jW.j]

stratigraphic reasons of assignment 2012-10-07 jW One of the arranged line of 45 large stones that comprise stone installation a16 which rests on floor f247. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
typological reasons for assignment 2012-10-07 jW We hypothesize that these stones, which roughly follow the alignment of the original EDIII revetment wall f11, were installed in the late Mittani period after f11 became covered with accumulation. We have sometimes referred to these stones as memory stones. [Input File: Wx07jW.j]
