Squares A and C.  Fragments of pottery vessels were discovered in natural sandy hamra soil (L105, L106, L108); these included a cooking pot (Fig. 3:1), a jar (Fig. 3:8) and an amphora (Fig. 3:9) from the Late Roman period, a flask (Fig. 3:10) from the Byzantine period, and small body fragments of jugs made of buff color ware and dating to the Early Islamic period.
Square B. A pit grave (L107; 0.8×1.9 m, depth 0.35 m; Fig. 4), which was hewn in the kurkar and aligned northeast-southwest, was discovered in the south of the square. Several bones (not examined) were uncovered in the grave. The covering stones of the tomb (0.3–0.4×0.8 m) were found in the square, ex situ. The soil fill in the grave contained ribbed body sherds of baggy-shaped jars from the Byzantine period. An irregular shaped pit (L104; Fig. 5) was exposed in the north of the square. It was dug in sandy hamra soil beneath the kurkar. The soil fill in the pit containedjar fragments (Fig. 3:2–7) dating to the Byzantine period.
The ceramic artifacts recovered from the excavation were mixed, probably due to their proximity to the ancient remains at Khirbat Diran. No architectural remains were discovered in the area, possibly because it was located outside the built-up zone of the ancient settlement and possibly because the site was damaged during the construction of a movie theater in 1932, which was still standing in the area until recently.
