A quarry (Figs. 1, 2) was discovered; its western part was fairly steep (up to 2 m) and the steps elsewhere in the quarry were one stone high (c. 0.35 m). It seems that most of the removed stones were of similar size (0.35 × 0.35 × 0.65 m). Two of the steep steps in the west of the quarry terminated in opposite curves, perhaps toward a vault-like closing. This is probably the initial building step of a structure or an underground installation that was not completed. Very few finds were discovered. The potsherds dated to the Second Temple and the Byzantine–Early Islamic periods and included a fragment (3 cm) of a terra sigillata vessel, bearing a decoration in relief or perhaps a stamped impression of the potter’s name (Fig. 3:1) and a small juglet with incised decoration from the Byzantine period (Fig. 3:2). Another find was a long narrow piece of marble (a handle?), which is flat on the bottom and curved on top (Fig. 3:3).
