Text description of view 2008-09-19 jW This final photograph shows six of the eight assigned specific labels, which are groupings of elements with a specific, common function but that were not necessarily deposited in the same stratum (here, built at the same time). There are three wall systems: ^wall1 was probably built as early as the Early Dynastic period, and may have served to delimit the sacred area to the west of the temple; ^wall3 is a continuation of the original revetment wall system which extends from J2 in the east and was built in the Early Dynastic period; ^wall2 is a Mittani period extension that was probably associated with the shift of sacral functions from the east to the west. ^stair1 is a structure associated with ^wall2 and was built during the Mittani when access to the temple was shifted from the east to the west. ^bin1 is a late Mittani period addition, probably made to preserve the sacred functions after ^stair1 was covered by accumulations. ^room1 is a very late working area with a plaster floor surface.
