Title:   Stoa Gutter Well
Category:   Well
Description:   Well below Stoa Gutter opposite Pier 1.
Heavy dumped filling remarkable among Agora well-deposits both for the high quality and the good conditions of pottery of all sorts.
It represents the stock of a retail potter's shop near the edge of the square, damaged in the Persian sack and deliberately discarded by the owner immediately thereafter.
Short period of use, the shaft was abandoned as a well and used as a dumping place for a vast mass of broken pottery.
