In the northern plateau we continued the survey along the eastern edge, which is the most sensitive to modern housing development, by covering squares NP39.1 to 66.3. Ceramic concentrations here commonly exceeded 1,000 sherds, and in places 1,500 and occasionally 2,000 sherds per square. In this area as well we observed density peaks in certain squares in relation to their surrounding squares which present approximately half of that density.
This could mean that the squares of high density represent houses whereas those of low density the gardens and the free spaces surrounding them.
We recorded many walls oriented along the cardinal points, a rectangular rim of a well, and in two squares we spotted segments which most likely belonged to the fortification wall of the city.
Among the rest of the finds, we should mention a few ceramic wasters and slugs found in many squares but especially in the area of NP50, and a Doric capital in NP49.2.
