(2) G 6035
As the reconstruction of the series [alpha], [beta], [gamma], G 6034 and G 6035 of December 14 seemed on examination to be uncertain, I had the men cut into G 6035 inside north and east walls and along faces of [alpha], [beta], [gamma]. Definite proof was found that the construction plane against the south face of [alpha] was later than G 6034 as well as later than G 6035.

[ILLUSTRATION]

G 6034 was built over G 6035 so that the north wall of G 6034 coincides with south wall along pits G 6035 H - C but separated by a horizontal layer of limestone rubbish.
