Notes:   Lot 20 "Ash, Carbon and Slag Fill, against the west face of dividing wall between Rooms A and B" of 1936 excavations including P 19790, SS 5379 and coin ΣΑ-16. It was believed to antedate the construction of the building since the wall of the building seemed to cut it. However, HAT digging in the same area in 1950 (p. 2245), describes what appears to be the same stratum (he does not specifically mention the earlier excavations) as lying on the floor of Brick Building here. The material dug in 1936 should be used with caution.
