In the courtyards of the altar, seven other variously shaped stone installations were uncovered, such as the one just to the man’s right. Inside these installations, excavators found either complete pottery vessels, which originally probably contained offerings, or animal bones and ashes.

Behind the installation, both the higher level and the slightly lower level ramps are visible, sloping downwards from the top left to the middle right of the photo.
