Area D (Figs. 2, 3). Four layers were exposed.
Stratum I: Hellenistic period (fourth–third centuries BCE). A floor of large pebbles survived only in the northeastern part of the square (L404).
Stratum II: Persian period (end of sixth–fourth centuries BCE). Two floor levels were discerned in the southern part of the square (L403). Locus 402 was also ascribed to this stratum. This layer was characterized by a plethora of pottery vessels that included bowls, jars of various types and cooking pots.
Stratum III: Iron I (eleventh–mid tenth centuries BCE). A floor was exposed (L413).
Stratum IV: Chalcolithic period (fifth millennium BCE). No architectural remains were exposed, but rather, a fill layer containing many jar fragments. A yellowish brown layer of alluvium that is characteristic of this region and devoid of potsherds was exposed below Stratum IV


Area E (Figs. 4, 5). Six strata were exposed.
Strata I–II: The upper two layers, which are dated to the Hellenistic period, included a wall (W31) that survived one course high, and two floors. Fragments of Rhodian amphoras were revealed, among them three stamped handles.
Strata III–V: Persian period (end of the sixth–fourth centuries BCE). The remains of floors made of potsherds and small stones were exposed in half of the square; the finds from them are characterized by fragments of mortaria, cooking pots and jars.
Stratum VI: A fill layer replete with potsherds from Iron I and the Chalcolithic period (L313) was discerned; below it was a deposit of yellowish brown soil devoid of sherds (an alluvial layer c. 35 cm thick).
