|Text description of view||2008-09-19||jW||This final photograph shows the major elements of the stonework of Mittani Phase 14 in relationship to the BA temple, seen on the top of the mound in the upper right hand photograph. The focal point is a monumental staircase, f21, which leads upward to the east from a small plaza, f102 and f70. It is bounded on the north by stone borders, f14 and f108, and on the south by f20. Prior to the time the staircase was built, the wall defining the sacred space was f41 which had a buttress, f194, and a mud glacis, f137. The revetment wall, f3, (not shown here) that is below the late addition to the top, f192, uses the triangular stone installation, f99, to fill the space between f3 and f41. The stones of f37, f126, and f142 are later additions whose function is unclear. The stones of f152 and f109 are isolated, high-founded blocks whose function and source is unknown.
