The entire eastern side (length c. 7 m, depth c. 4 m) of the quarry, which was hewn in the bedrock without steps, was exposed. The southern side (length c. 1 m, depth c. 1.5 m; Fig. 4) and the northern side (length c. 2 m, depth c. 3 m; Fig. 5) were partially uncovered. The western side was located beyond the bounds of the excavation area. Numerous separating channels (L2, L4–L6; length 2–3 m, width c. 0.15 m, max. depth c. 0.3 m) and signs of rock-cutting and detachment of stones (size of stones c. 1.5×2.0 m; Fig. 6) were exposed on the floor of the quarry. A large rock block (L13; 1.3×1.5×1.5 m) was revealed in situ on the floor; however, it was not completely detached from the bedrock. Rock-cutting debris was found in the southern part of the quarry, consisting of alternating layers of small and medium-sized stone chips and layers of light yellow-brown soil. No datable finds were discovered.
