Dumped filling of late 2nd c. B.C.; Roman Group F, dumped filling of second quarter to end of 1st c. B.C.
Dumped fillings thrown in during second quarter of 1st c. B.C. containing mostly debris resulting from Sulla's sack in 86 B.C.Agora XXIX, p. 464: Four fills distinguished during excavations ... but seemingly with no chronological differentiation (p. 580).Treated as one fill for data base.
Cistern with two tunnels, the one entering its neck cut off by an early Roman well, the other, at the bottom not excavated. No stratigraphy noted during excavation, but analysis of pottery suggests three fills, of which the lower two are potter's dumps. Subdivisions are based on containers at time of excavation.
With cistern at 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ (P 10:2), two chambers connected by a passage.18/Π went out of use first and was closed off from 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ; filled up at one time with material dating between 350 and 300 B.C.17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ continued in use until ca. 250 B.C. when it was filled up at one time with an apparently contemporary group of discarded household pottery. A slight accumulation of infiltrative material of 1st c. A.D. was found at the top, probably introduced when the top of the cistern was broken in.
Dumped fill in a shaft which served as means of access leading to a water channel south of the Stoa of Attalos.
