The quarry was delimited on the north and west by two meticulously hewn straight walls (Figs. 1, 2). The western wall (length 8.43 m, height 0.9–2.5 m) continued southward beyond the limits of the excavation. The very long northern wall (length 13 m, height 2.2–2.9 m) was cut at its eastern end by rock-hewn steps that extended beyond the excavation’s boundaries. Several rectangular stone blocks on the quarry’s floor, which was smooth and slanted, were surrounded by various-sized severance channels.
Three hewn installations (Loci 115, 118, 119; Fig. 1) were discovered at the top of the quarry’s western side. Installation 115 was circular (diam. 0.25 m, depth 0.37 m; Fig. 3), with an edge that was probably meant for a cover. Installation 118 was a rectangular depression (0.28 × 0.70 m, depth 0.2 m; Fig. 4) whose two short walls sloped inward. Installation 119 was oval (0.25 × 0.34 m, depth 0.3 m; Fig. 5) and hewn within an elongated rectangular hollow (0.3 × 0.6 m). At the top of the quarry’s northern wall was another rock-hewn oval installation (L116; 0.22 × 0.40 m, depth 0.3 m; Fig. 6). Midway up the western wall of Installation 116 was a perforation (diam. 2 cm) that drained the installation into the quarry by way of a hewn channel (length 1 m, width 10 cm, depth 7 cm), oriented north–south. The quarry was covered with an accumulation that contained numerous masonry stones, among them neatly dressed ashlar stones, architectural elements, including fragments of marble and limestone cornices (Figs. 7, 8), tesserae, a large amount of gray plaster and many roof tiles, one of which was stamped with a workshop seal (Fig. 9). A large number of pottery vessel fragments that mostly dated to the Byzantine period (fourth–sixth centuries CE; Figs. 10–12) was found as well, including bowls (Fig. 10:1–15), cooking pots (Fig. 11:3–5), handles and frying pan lids (Fig. 11:1, 2), jars (Fig. 11:6–12), among them holemouth (Fig. 11:6, 7) and Gaza-type baggy-shaped storage jars (Fig. 11:9), jugs (Fig. 12:1–8), a juglet (Fig. 12:9), a flask (Fig. 12: 10) and ceramic lamps (Fig. 12:12), as well as fragments of three jars (Fig. 11:13–15) from the first century BCE–first century CE and a few glass fragments from the Byzantine period. Two perforations in a body fragment (Fig. ) seem to indicate the vessel had been repaired in antiquity.
