Three half squares were excavated in the area (2 × 11 m; Fig. 1). No building remains or rock-cuttings were found. Beneath a modern wall (W1), a fill that was probably meant to level the area, consisted of a layer of reddish brown soil (thickness 0.5 m) and medium and large stones (L3). The fill contained fragments of jars from the Roman period (Fig. 2:1), a lid (Fig. 2:2), the fragment of a female figurine (a garment fold) that is characteristic of the Hellenistic and Roman periods (Fig. 2:3) and a candlestick-like glass bottle that is dated from the end of the first century CE to the beginning of the third century CE (Fig. 2:4).
