Abstract: The remains of the basement-floor of the building, a ground-plan of which is given in Figure 17, was discovered in February, 1888, in a field (archiepiscopal property) called Nadur, and formerly bearing also the name of Teides-Iz-zghir. They lie at a distance of about 5 miles to the south of Valletta, and midway between the villages of Luca and Mkabba, in a lonely but well-cultivated district of the island. Though constructed of large blocks of stone, these remains cannot, in any way, be considered as belonging to the megalithic class of structures of which there are so many in these islands: they differ from the megalithic class both in type and in mode of construction.
