The second excavation took place May 25th-28th, at House XVII located between the alleged palace of Afshin and Manqur. Herzfeld soon gave up excavating north of the modern city Kura because the modern architecture built over the site destroyed the 9th century CE layers.
Herzfeld then moved to Qasr al-Ashiq May 28th-29th. From June 1st-5th he supervised the excavation of Qubbat al-Sulaibiyya, only to leave the rest of June for southern and eastern Iran and Iraq.
