Slabs of stone more finished, and slightly thinner than the lower courses, laid as flooring.

Description: Generally rectangular in shape, these slabs of stone were put down over the lower courses of the foundation, on the stylobate, to produce a regularness to the floor, often indicating a more finely finished temple or building. Often laid when the lower courses are irregular, such as geometric foundations.
