37 Having thus dispensed not only with the interpretation, but also with the very existence, of the large structures published by Petrie as covering almost the entire southern third of the ancient city, Hogarth was even more ˜rmly convinced that the Hellenion of Herodotus should be equated with the structure(s) that he had excavated in the northern part of the city. C. hypothesis. In fact, he felt that their work at the site had provided a “destructive contribution by urging the inconclusiveness of the archaeological evidence” (1898/99: 45).

In spite of Petrie’s plans showing areas inhabited or utilized by members of various trades (copper smelters, silver workers, potters, and possibly iron mongers; ˜g. 3), he simply did not have enough time to investigate much of the actual town. In fact, he noted that most of his knowledge concerning the town had been obtained through the work of the sebakhin from whom he had purchased objects on a daily basis (Petrie 1886: 35). Rather than working in the town, Petrie had concentrated most of his remaining eˆorts on clearing the building that he had termed the “Great Temenos,” paying special attention to its gateway and to the large block of chambers that he had encountered within it (Petrie 1886: 35).

West of this storehouse, between it and the entrance to the temenos, lay a second mudbrick building of similar size, that diˆered from the ˜rst in having its entrances at ground level. Unfortunately, it is di¯cult to determine exactly how much of this second structure Petrie actually excavated since he oˆered no plan of it.
