Title:   Mycenaean Well in OA
Category:   Well
Description:   Well 15: Mycenaean. It was situated about 35 meters down the slope northwest of the exit of the Mycenaean Fountain.
Well circular or roughly oval in section.
Diameter max. width to -4.0: ca. 1.50, below -4.0:ca. 0.90.
Water level ca. -2.50. The bottom of the shaft was rough, blocked by a ledge of rock too hard to cut, which still bears in two places the marks of a pointed tool with which it was tested. About 0.30m below, a late Roman pit which cut into the north side sherds occurred in fair quantity and the fill seemed to be pure.
Unstratified fill. Seems to constitute a dump fill from neighboring houses of the Mycenaean III B period, and is somewhat earlier than the major part of the dump fill of the Fountain.
