Ha-Gatot Park is located in an area of sand dunes and a kurkar ridge. The excavation (5.0 × 7.5 m; Fig. 2) took place adjacent to and south of winepresses uncovered in the past (Shavit 1995). In the past, salvage excavations were conducted south and west of the excavation area (Haddad 2013 [Fig. 1: A-5619]; Dayan et al. 2019 [Fig. 1: A-8155]).
The uppermost deposit in the excavation area was a layer of sand (thickness 0.6–1.0 m), below which was dark clay soil. In the eastern part of the area were sherds and glass fragments dated to the Byzantine period (not drawn). In the clay soil in the western part of the excavation area, at a depth of 0.8 m below the surface, were two walls running perpendicular to each other (W1, W2; width c. 0.4 m; Fig. 3). The walls were built of fieldstones and survived to a height of one course. A floor of small fieldstones (L1009), which was poorly preserved, abutted W2 from the south. West of the walls was a heap of fallen stones (L1002). Fourteen poorly preserved bronze coins were found at the level of the remains (L1002, L1004, L1009); they apparently date to the fourth–fifth centuries CE.
Scattered in the area were finds with no clear association. These included a rim fragment of an alabastron dating from the Byzantine period and a few sherds (not drawn), among them a Rouletted Form 1 bowl from the second–fifth centuries CE (Magness 1993:185–186), a Rouletted Form 2B bowl from the sixth century CE (Magness 1993:187–188), a ridged frying pan from the third–ninth centuries CE (Magness 1993:211–212), the base of an LRW plate, a Gaza jar of type 2 (300–450 CE; Majcherek 1995:166–168) and a fragment of a candlestick lamp from the sixth–seventh centuries CE (Magness 1993:251–253).
