Agora Deposit: C 19:5
Title:   House R Fillings
Category:   Fill
Description:   House R, fill under drain tiles and fillings associated with house K in industrial area, including what was C 19:15, plus C 19:16 and
C 19:17.
a) House built as dwelling in second half of 5th.c.
b) Used as marble-workers' shop from beginning of 4th. c. to near middle of century. Rebuilt as an industrial establishment about middle of 4th. c.
c) Area built over in Hellenistic times.
A small amount of material can probably be associated with the original period of the house (cont. 662) and at some points where the excavation was carried to bedrock pottery of the 6th c. was found. Most of the material comes however from the second and third phases noted above: either the marble-workers' shop, or the heavy filling of dumped earth and marble chips thrown in over the area when the level was raised for the remodelling of the building at about the middle of the 4th c. B.C. It is not always possible to distinguish between these two periods; the objects from both, mostly of the late 5th into the first half of the 4th c., have been listed together.
