Day 11: Drainage

Perhaps it is not the most romantic topic, but our excavation today in Cardo 3 North discovered a covered drainage channel cut into the bedrock and plastered. It is about 20 cm wide and 15 cm deep and drops about 20 cm across the 3 m probe. Toward the north end, the drain widens to 40 cm. We are guessing that the additional flow may come from the House of Tyche. We will try and figure out that matter tomorrow.
