Description
Tooley (p.116) : Terracotta has been used as a substitute for wood in the production of some granaries. The best preserved example is that from Salamieh, Castle Norwich 37.2.i, H.15.2 x W.21 x L.29.2 cms (Blackman 1920, 206-8, XIX-XX; Bourriau 1988, 104-5 no.91). The construction of this model seems most closely to resemble 2 dimensional granaries. The walls are high and reach to the first storey. Although the walls are not peaked they do have a barely perceptible slope to the corners, which may be due to the plasticity of the material more than to any deliberate attempt at shaping. The door, in the left corner of the right side is surmounted by a Xkr-frieze. Against the back wall are a row of 5 magazines with windows and holes in the terrace above for the introduction of grain. On the first storey is the terrace forming a flat roof over the magazines.
