Area A
Square C3. A section of a wall (W1; Fig. 1), built of large fieldstones, was exposed. The eastern side of the wall was abutted by a layer of tamped earth (L104), mixed with small stones and potsherds, including a bowl (Fig. 3:1) and jars (Fig. 3:6, 7), dating to the Byzantine period.

I. A layer of plaster mixed with small stones and potsherds, such as a krater (Fig. 3:2), from the Byzantine period (L103).
II. A layer of Byzantine potsherds, mostly body fragments (L108) of jars (Fig. 3:3, 4).
III. A layer of wet alluvium mixed with Byzantine potsherds (L114), including a jar (Fig. 3:5).
The foundation trench severed mud-brick material whose nature was unclear (L107).
