Title:   Well F
Category:   Well
Description:   A well (diameter 1.10m) at the east edge of the valley road leading from the SW corner of the Agora, about 90m SW of the Tholos. The mouth of the well was subsequently covered by the east wall of the Great Drain.
No difference in date was discerned in the pottery from different depths, although there were several changes in the character of the filling. It was filled at about the time the Great Drain was built.
1. Over the top of the well the filling showed some disturbance of the Hellenistic period when terracotta drains were laid in the area.Presumably the well was open at the time of Persian sack and filled up immediately thereafter.
2. Dumped filling characterized by ten ostraka of the 480's and two black figured lekythoi assigned to the Haimon Group.
3. From -6m to -9m : a substantial deposit of potter's clay containing cinders and including a few water pots.
4. From -9m to the bottom -9.70m : a filling of earth and stones with few pottery fragments.
