Category:   Well
Description:   Well west of the Eponymous Heroes monument. The shaft was of irregular width (ca. 0.81m where the full circle was first preserved), sunk in soft bedrock clay much of which had collapsed around the top of the shaft and large masses of which had fallen from the sides of the shaft. The dumped fill was entirely homogeneous as demonstrated by joins between all layers excavated.
Excavation terminated at a depth of 4.25m. due to collapse of rock in the well.
Sherd being heavily worn around the broken edges indicating that they had been broken and discarded long before they were deposited in the well.
Contents:   About 60% coarse; 40% fine ware; 10% figured; few late Geometric; few Protoattic; some Corinthian imports.
