Example text

A street running along the lower eastern slope of the Hill of the Nymphs would pass either through or along the eastern border of the deme of Melite; we do not know how far it extended toward the east. The street must have existed from early times; it led through the gap between Pnyx and Areopagus which was the only way of communication from north to south, and which must have been used from the time when Athens was first settled. The road along the slope of the Hill of the Nymphs was the counterpart of Areopagus Street on the opposite side of the valley.

This suggests a relationship of some sort between the corridor and the Annex wall and is the strongest evidence for the association of the Annex and the building proper. Further east a section of the wall was completely removed in late Hellenistic times. Near the northeast corner four courses are preserved, the bottom one a roughly shaped poros boulder against whose southwest corner a cistern was built in the third century. At the corner the top course has a finished north face, against which are set two relatively small poros blocks of a wall leading north.

At the end of the fifth century a very hard floor of marble dust and chips formed over the whole area and extended beyond its walls both north and south. A second layer of dust and chips was found above the first in the northern rooms; the upper layer at the northeast, composed of very fine dust, apparently a mixture of marble dust and emery, seems clear evidence of marble working on the spot. A small marble perfume bottle 63 (P1. 64c) found among the upper chips is perhaps an example of the work done here.
