(3) G 7130
The space between the core of G 7130 and its casing is filled with very rough masonry-some large blocks (as core), smaller rubble of white, yellow and gray limestone with white plaster. Just north of chapel G 7130 (main S chapel interior) is a large block thrown in, in a slanting position with a red line. [ILLUSTRATION]. This must have been taken from another structure as the red line is otherwise unaccountable. In front of this chapel is a well made stone pavement level with the floor of the chapel and enclosed in a crude brick wall.
