|text description of view
||This series of views, taken after the monumental wall, f11, and apron, f10 were fully excavated, allows us to evaluate their extent after the last modifications were made, probably in Phase 5, the Mittani period. From this photograph, it appears as if the large limestone blocks f66, f67, and f68 were part of the wall prior to abandonment. They were set in, but not covered with plaster-like mud. They appear to be on the northernmost of three E-W lines of similar blocks that form the extant top of the wall. They were later removed for safety reasons as we excavated just to the north of them to explore how the wall was constructed. The three subviews are all taken looking south towards the north face of the wall and illustrate how the most intact of several layers of bakhia, f50, sealed the surface extending from the wall up to the temple BA.
