A bell-shaped cistern (max. diam. c. 5 m, depth c. 4.5 m; Fig. 2) hewn in hard limestone bedrock was excavated. The cistern opening is a hewn shaft (diam. c. 0.8 m, depth c. 0.5 m; Fig. 3). The sides of the cistern were lined with three layers of mortar and plaster. The bottom layer (thickness 0.25–0.30 m), composed of mortar mixed with small stones, was used to fill the cavities and pockets created when the cistern was hewn. A layer of white plaster (thickness c. 5 cm) was applied on top of the mortar. The exterior layer consisted of gray hydraulic plaster (thickness c. 0.5 cm), which turned a shade of green because of the moist conditions. The bottom of the cistern, also lined with plaster, was not flat.
The fill in the cistern included modern construction debris, soil and stones, some of which were dressed, which completely blocked the installation from the bottom to the very top (Fig. 4).
Based on the method of construction, it seems that the cistern was built in the modern era or at the earliest during the Ottoman period.
