Ahilud’s house. Although these remains of walls and roof-support pillars (left) appear to mark off only a few small rooms, in fact they once framed a cluster of three houses belonging to Ahilud and his extended family. Just behind the workman in the photo is the largest room of the main house, separated by a row of four roof support pillars from a long narrow room, far right. To the left of the largest room is a courtyard. Sometime after this photo was taken, the areas to the left and in front of the main house and the mound of debris behind it were also excavated and a plan of the entire complex was drawn. See plan for features of house.
