In front of you can be seen part of the water system that channelled drinking water from a source in the vicinity of the palace. This took the form of a series of clay pipes with one end narrower than the other so that they could fit together, thereby increasing the water pressure and allowing it to flow more easily (figure 1, 2).

The rectangular cut stone on your left, with the hollow in the upper side, is part of the drainage system linked to the perpendicular built conduit which drained the rain from the light-well and the "East Hall" on the upper floor.
