Description:   Well at U/10-14/4, in Byzantine Room I.
Well is ca. 1.20m in diameter, dug into bedrock. Excavated to depth of roughly -8.00m; sides started collapsing and thus did not dig to full depth. Some stone-lining, varying in depth from 0.50m to 0.75m., between stone floor of room and beginning of bedrock. Above floor a later collar added in Frankish-Turkish times (?)
At very top, for a depth of ca. 0.60m had nondescript late pottery, not kept.
POU, for depth of ca. 4.80m, includes many whole or nearly whole coarse water jugs (many still in tins), a little glazed pottery, including lamp fragments and much coarse ware of the 13th century A.D. A much used marble well-head was found collapsed into well midway down period of use fill and a fragment of a ceiling coffer from the Temple of Ares.
Classical dump fill of the 5th-4th c. B.C. dug for depth of ca. -2.60m. Some black glazed, much coarse ware, and some fragments of water pipes (still in tins).
