A layer of tamped lime (L11; Fig. 2) that could not be dated with certainty and may be modern was discovered in the northeast of the excavation area. To its west, a lower elevation by about 0.4 m, was a layer of small limestone fieldstones (L13). The stones were founded on hamra (L15) that contained fragments of a fish plate from the Hellenistic period (third–second centuries BCE; Fig. 3:1). It seems that the limestone layer was a floor foundation from the Hellenistic period. Hamra that contained a mixture of pottery finds dating from the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine periods (L12) was discovered right below the surface level (L10) down to a depth of c. 1.2 m. The finds include a jar from the Hellenistic period (third–second centuries BCE; L12; Fig. 3:2), a jar from the Early Roman period (first century BCE – first century CE; L12; Fig. 3:3) and a coastal jar from the Byzantine period (fifth–seventh centuries CE; L10; Fig. 3:4). The dates of the artifacts revealed in the excavation correspond to the dating of the remains discovered at the site so far.
