|This bin in the NW corner of sp.173 is roughly square in shape. It has two arms one running n-s, the other e-w. Only a small skim of the bin is left, the rest which was truncated in antiquity remains only in remnants of the n-s arm higher up on the north wall. The fill of the bin is made up of the same material as the bin itself - large patches of plaster and orange, bricky material. All of this fill is clean with no inclusions. It comes down onto floor packing with no base.|
This fill is probably the upper parts of the bin which have been demolished and used to fill up the bin when it went out of use.
4727 makes up the southern part of the west edge + constitutes the SW corner of the bin, it is contemporary with 4800 or was constructed sirectly after as it abuts the NW corner of layers 4800 and leans south onto it although it was constructed after.
During excavation of the western half of the bin I found many layers of plaster base. These base layers also form the sides of the bin - they become thicker at the edges and in some cases merge with the wall plaster.
