Morris described Room 194 as having a “small chamber partitioned off from the original area of Room 194 by the later re-occupants who built a wattle and daub wall. The floor of 194 was tinted red, as were the walls to a height of 2 feet 2 inches. Thence upward the plaster was white, except for series of red triangles pointing upward from the basal zone of the same color. These occurred in groups of three.” (Morris 1928:362)
