Description:   Well at 89-90/ΙΗ-ΙΘ (diameter at top 1.10m), between the southeast corner over the mouth of of the Odeion and the Panathenaic Way. the well lay a thin layer of dug bedrock containing a few Hellenistic and earlier sherds. Fill in the well proper was a heavy dark fill. Toward the bottom of the well its consistency changed to a thick sticky mud which was very difficult to remove.
Carefully dug with a series of eleven steps 0.50m apart on one side of the shaft, ending 1.00m above the bottom. The inflow of water during excavation was rapid. The bulk of the pottery (19 boxes) came from the top 2,5m. There was no stratification.
