There is not much that can be said about Thirty, given the fact that most of it remains underground. Geophysical survey results suggest, however, that Structure Thirty is another very large piered building on the same NNE-SSW alignment as Structure Twelve.

The curvature of Thirty’s exposed wall also indicates that it was larger than its north-western neighbour.
