Title:   Well on Lower Slope of Hill of the Nymphs
Category:   Well
Description:   A well on the lower slope of the Hill of the Nymphs, (diam. 1.20m -water level -7m), to 7.90m. The scanty use filling at the bottom contained water jars and pitchers as well as the inventoried objects; above it was about 5.00m. of collapsed bedrock with no pottery whatsoever. The dumped filling, mixed with the broken bedrock above a depth of 2.40m., appears to be of the same date as the use filling, and yielded most of the inventoried objects - black figured and black glazed, as well as coarse ware, lamps, figurines, and loom weights; to be especially noted are a child's commode (P 18010, Hesp. 17 (1948), pp. 154-155), and an inscribed well head (P 18276, Hesp. 18 (1949), p. 125, no. 7). Use filling, second quarter of the 6th. c. to about 560 B.C. Dumped filling also of the second quarter of the 6th. c.

.1=Upper fill (fill 1), dumped filling
