Stratum II
A layer of alluvium (L102, thickness c. 1 m; Fig. 1) was founded on a layer of sterile gray soil (L103). The alluvium layer contained two coins (IAA 117669, 117670) from the fourth–fifth centuries CE and numerous lumps of travertine that had crystallized on potsherds dating to the Late Byzantine period, including a bowl (Fig. 2:1), cooking pots (Fig. 2:2–5) and a jar (Fig. 2:6). The layer of alluvium is indicative of free flowing water that conveyed archaeological material, upon which the lumps of travertine crystallized. It seems that this layer was formed after the residents of Nysa-Scythopolis destroyed the system of channels and dams at the end of the Byzantine period, during the Muslim conquest.
Stratum I
A terrace wall (W101; Fig. 3) built of a single row of basalt fieldstones is ascribed to this stratum. The wall, oriented north–south (length 2 m, width 0.4 m) and preserved a single course  high, was founded on the layer of alluvium (L102). Potsherds from the Late Byzantine period and a cooking pot from the Umayyad period (Fig. 2:7) were found in the wall’s foundation. The nature of the wall’s construction and its location in the city’s agricultural hinterland show it was connected to the farming activity in the region. It seems that the agricultural land was not densely inhabited and scattered farms were located around.
