Cistern

We found out a part of margin of the third cistern.
We have to remove another other two layers, which were formed just before the eruption in 472 A.D., to reveal it completely.

1)
b0159178_0394749.jpg As for these architectural elements, on the east and west sides of both of them we can see the finished surfaces.
So now I think that we can give up the former idea illustrated in fig. 1 ( a part of a wall which runs parallel to the wall with a decorated gate).

2)
b0159178_041228.jpgIt may be some pieces of huge rectangular pillars which run in right-angled direction to the wall with a decorated gate, and which sustained some arches upon them.





3)

Or they may be some remains of two parallel walls.

A wall constructed to divide a room in two parts. It was added late for the beginning construction of the main frame of this building.
It leaned against a former wall on the south end, and it was not united with the former one.
And finally it collapsed.
So now we can see a fresco decoration conserved very well on the former wall only in the area where the fresco was protected for a long time by the south end of this attaching wall up to a hole in which a huge beam was inserted.

"The margin of it is not revealed, but there must be beneath my foot....
Well... It is very vaguely yet, but can you see it ?"
