Category:   Well
Description:   A well in the industrial area of the Areopagus, about 7.00m. west of the West Bath, to a depth of 14.60m. This well was the direct successor to A 17:1, replacing it when it collapsed. The use filling at the very bottom contained the black figured amphora P 18348 (Hesp. 17 (1948), p. 184, pl. 65, 1) and a well head (P 18853, Hesp. 18 (1949), p. 125, no. 8). Above this the shaft was filled with pure dug bedrock almost to the top. The earth filling of the top 1.90m., where the walls of the well had broken out to form a pit, contained very scanty pottery, of the same date as that of the use filling. Use filling, second quarter of sixth c. B.C., the last half. Dumped filling of same date.
