Exactly, that's what I tried to say in the second paragraph of my post at the end of the previous discussion. No columns that were partially quarried before being abandoned, no quarried columns that were only partially rounded or finished.
They're all totally complete and just lying there broken amidst the debris. That is a clear sign of a completed settlement whose stonework has been pilfered and repurposed elsewhere. It is not a sign of an abandoned quarry. It far more resembles a ransacked settlement.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
