I Fig. 12. 30m. to the east along the north wall, is built obliquely to the piece of bedrock from the latter wall. The roughly triangular area between the end wall of the stoa and this oblique wall was excavated, so that the two faces of the walls are now easily seen. The oblique wall, though of more careless workmanship, seems to be of the same period as the other. It was probably a supporting wall to strengthen the end of the stoa against a higher level on the east. That the intervening area was not left open was proved by the excavation.

80 m. wide, for a colonnade. Stones of this wall can be traced in a slightly irregular line as far east as the terrace wall. On the west, the foundation bonds with a similar one that runs southward, for the colonnade on the west side of the court. This line was afterwards used for the western colonnade of the marble Peribolos, and the earlier foundation wall has been much built over. The foundation for the west stylobate crosses over the semicircular altar in front of Temple A. 80 m. 60 m. No vertical line of differentiation appears in the construction, and it is possible that on this side the colonnade had a gutter along the front, as was the case in the later period.

The gutter was laid first, and the stylobate overlaps it by five to ten centimetres. 60 m. 35 m. 10 m. deep. The direction of the drainage is not certain, as the settlement of the construction has upset the levels, but it seems to have run to the north side at a point very nearly over the main Peirene drain. 06 m. wide, was cut in the outer lip of the gutter block at the northwest corner at a later period, and apparently was intended to take care of water which collected there because of a settlement of the foundation.
