Title:   Drain System
Category:   Drain
Description:   Accumulated fillings in a system of underground drains at west end of section ΔΔ with northward continuation into and across Section Υ.
The filling in the "underground passages" in section ΔΔ appears to be not later than 3rd c. B.C.; but drain channels, pits and cuttings, etc. in Υ are partly Early Roman, some mixed to Late Roman or later.
Section ΔΔ: west branch and east branch recorded separately and noted on cards for each find; not separated into subdivisions here.
Section Υ: pit at 31-32/ΜΘ-Ν, 31-32/ΜΣΤ-ΜΖ, 36-38/ΞΔ, 33/ΝΒ, 31-32/ΜΓ-ΜΣΤ, 31/ΜΑ-ΜΓ
two fragments of semi-glazed bowls with everted rim (late 2nd c.?) intrusive in west branch. More extensive disturbance in east branch indicated by fragments of dipper, 2nd c. plate, at least five moldmade bowls, a Roman lamp.
