Title:   Well
Category:   Well
Description:   Tiled well near the SW corner of the market square between the Southwest Fountain House and the Great Drain, three fills noted: lower fill of earth and stones with a few fragments only of coarse pottery (none inventoried, containers 66-71); middle filling a heavy deposit primarily of table ware, apparently a gradual accumulation; upper supplementary fill. Although carefully constructed this shaft seems never to have served as a well but only as a rubbish dump for neighboring establishments.
Finds from the Dump (no subdivision): MC 621, T 2177, IL 824
Depth uncertain (no subdivision): A 115
Upper fill: Two Knidian amphora handles. Most of bowls long-petal.
Middle fill: No coins or datable stamped amphora handles. Lamps indicate broad range of date. Long-petal bowls found at all depths, suggesting fill was dumped rather that accumulated over a period of time. Most of bowls long-petal.
Notes:   Subdivisions:
.1=Upper fill.
.2=Middle fill.
.3=Lower fill (no finds inventoried).
