Type:   Deposit
Name:   G 18:1
Title:   Well
Category:   Well
Description:   Dumped filling in a well on the west slope of the Areopagus (apparently separate, no mends between them, but differing little in date) the bottom filling apparently thrown in towards the beginning of the last quarter of the fifth century, the middle and top fillings near the end of the century, but all containing considerable material earlier than the lower limit. The deposit cannot be used for close dating except for the lower limit, ca. 415-410 B.C.. [LT, 17 May 1954, deposit summaries].
Apparently never used as a water supply. Three separated dumped fillings were noted, divided by layers of earth and mud; all were dumped in at about the same time, but each had somewhat distinctive characteristics.
