Area A. A cupmark and an installation for extracting liquids were hewn in kurkar bedrock. The cupmark (L104; diam. 0.25 m, depth 0.2 m; Fig. 3) was surrounded by natural fissures (L106, L109) that were deliberately filled-in with small fieldstones (max. length 0.1 m). The extraction installation (L118; min. dimensions 3.5 x 4.5 m) included a circular collecting vat (0.6 x 0.9 m) that was hewn in two phases. A sump (diam. 0.24 m) was cut in its center and an opening for collecting the liquid was discerned in its western side. The pottery recovered from the fill in Fissures 106 and 109 included a Gaza-type jar (Fig. 4:1), dating to the Byzantine period (sixth–seventh centuries CE), a base fragment of a glazed bowl decorated with slip and painting and imported from Greece (Fig. 4:3) and a jar of light colored clay (Fig. 4:4), dating to the Ottoman period (nineteenth–twentieth centuries CE).


Area B. A wall (W300; min. length 1.5 m; Fig. 5), built of ashlars placed on bedrock and aligned northeast-southwest, was exposed. Collapse of kurkar ashlars (average size 0.24 x 0.26 x 0.35 m) in three rows was exposed in the hamra fill overlying the wall (L113) and parallel to it. These were probably remains of this wall, which was destroyed during modern infrastructure work.

The ceramic finds discovered close to the wall dated to the Ottoman period and included a fragment of a Çanakkale-type bowl (Fig. 4:2), a jar of light colored clay adorned with a combed design (Fig. 4:5) and a spout of a Gaza-type jug (Fig. 4:6). A fragment of a glass bracelet (Fig. 6) dating to the Ottoman period and sheep and goat bones bearing signs of butchering were found in the fill alongside the collapse (L114, L121).
