Description (summary) 2010-02-15 sC Phase 63-MZA has been attributed, on the basis of the excavation carried out in the tell mound, to the Early Mittani period. In this period there is a re-organization of the area around the so called 'monumental staircase' (J2f130) located west to J04 area. As part of the re-organization of the space east of wall J2f129, a series of glacis layers were placed on top of the mound, with the result of covering as well wall J2f129; furthermore, large stones were placed on top of the glacis layer. These stones have been defined 'memory' stones on the basis of the thought that they were placed right above the ancient wall (J2f129) previously covered by the glacis layer, with the will of maintaing the memory of the wall 'still running below' but not anymore visible in Early Mittani period. Concerning J04, there are no evidence of structures in use whitin Phase 63-MZA. Within the J04 unit, two are the strata related with this phase: s18, in which some glacis layers were layed on top of the tell mound (as part of the re-organization of the space east to the staircase J2f130 and wall J2f129), and s19, in which no activities seem to take place within J04 unit besides a gradual build-up of the tell mound (in substrata s19b and s19c) as a consequence of the brickfall bf^2 that interested J06, J02 and the south portion of J04 unit.
