Title:   Pit
Category:   Pit
Description:   Pit, partly cleared; dumped filling of first half of 3rd. c. B.C., but with considerable material of the 4th. c. Hellenistic.
Its rotten schist walls collapsed some time near then and it was filled up with pottery, ashes and earth, and abandoned. Forced to stop digging because of the rotten walls. There was still soft earth in the bottom (at ca. 6m.), but we had stopped getting pottery at 4.20m.
Much of pottery has been burned.
