Title:   Foundry Pit
Category:   Pit
Description:   "Foundry Pit": N-S Cut on 50m. line (area of Stoa, Layer VII, with slag). A foundry pit in the courtyard of a small metalworking establishment outside the Agora to the northwest.
Both the courtyard and the pit preserved many traces of iron-working including slag, ash and charcoal, along with a considerable amount of pottery, figured, plain glazed and coarse, all fragmentary but constituting a homogeneous deposit, most of it rather earlier than the most developed material from Olynthos.
A few pieces not directly from the pit, but from closely related levels in the immediate vicinity are referred to this deposit.
Formerly deposit no. F 2:1.
