Description:   With cistern at 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ (P 10:2), two chambers connected by a passage.
18/Π went out of use first and was closed off from 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ; filled up at one time with material dating between 350 and 300 B.C. with a miscellaneous collection of tiles, coarse pottery and other household objects, with a few good black-glazed pieces and two dateable coins.
17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ continued in use until ca. 250 B.C. when it was filled up at one time with an apparently contemporary group of discarded household pottery. A slight accumulation of infiltrative material of 1st c. A.D. was found at the top, probably introduced when the top of the cistern was broken in.
