Benjamin Mazar emphasized that his proposal to identify the royal building uncovered in his excavations on the Ophel as the “house of Millo” was purely hypothetical and in any case cannot be definitely linked to the Millo of David and Solomon. See Eilat Mazar and Benjamin Mazar, Excavations in the South of the Temple Mount: The Ophel of Biblical Jerusalem, Qedem 29 (1989), pp. ix–x. It is particularly surprising that Prof. Shiloh, the latest excavator of the fill structure in Area G of the City of David excavations, ignored the identification proposed by Kenyon and, following Prof. Mazar’s suggestion about the house of Millo, sought to locate the Millo in the area of the royal building found by Mazar on the Ophel. See Shiloh, “The City of David: 1978–1983,” in Biblical Archaeology Today: Proceedings of the International Congress on Biblical Archaeology, Jerusalem, April 1984 (Jerusalem: Israel Exploration Society, 1985), pp. 451–457.
