Title:   Early Drain Channel Pit
Category:   Pit
Description:   Ostrakon deposit, sand fill in a shallow channel in bedrock at the bottom of the Great Drain in the valley between the Areopagus and the Hill of Nymphs.
This group of ostraka may well come from a single ostrakophoria, but there is always the possibility that the water of the drain may have carried down earlier or later pieces.
Contents:   172 ostraka and a small amount of contemporary pottery, with a few later intrusions.
