Area A

A bell-shaped cistern (L506; min. depth 1.6 m, diam. of opening c. 0.7 m; Fig. 3) was exposed; it was coated with fine quality, light gray hydraulic plaster. The fill in the cistern comprised alluvium, different size stones and modern debris; it was not completely excavated to the bottom due to safety precautions.

Two rock-hewn channels (L502, L503; length 4–5 m, depth 0.2 m; see Fig. 3) led to the cistern from the south and east. They sloped toward the cistern opening and were probably intended to convey rainwater into the installation. A circular basin (diam. 0.7 m, depth 0.2 m) that was probably meant for storing the water was revealed at the end of the southern channel. A hewn cupmark (diam. 0.3 m, depth 0.25 m) was exposed just south of the eastern channel.


Area B

A cavity in the bedrock that is probably natural (L501; length 5 m, width 1–2 m, depth 3 m; Fig. 4) was exposed; it was covered with a layer of alluvium that contained modern debris. A cupmark and two rock-cuttings in the bedrock (L505) were revealed west and north of the cavity. The rock-cuttings were most likely used for quarrying building stones.
