One square (6.5 × 6.7 m) was opened in terra rosa soil. Several fragments of pottery vessels from the Roman and Byzantine periods were found in the upper layer. A quarry (3.0 × 4.4 m) in the middle of the area that was dated to the Byzantine period based on the ceramic finds was discovered. The four layers of cut stones reached the bottom of the quarry (1.41 m deep) and it seems the stonecutters had hewn the rock down to the soft-stone layer that was no longer suitable for quarrying masonry stones.


The remains of severance channels, clearly visible at the bottom and sides of the quarry, as well as the negatives of stones in bedrock and stones that had not been detached, indicate the average size of the hewn stones (0.3 × 0.4 × 0.7 m). It is assumed that the stones were used for construction in nearby settlements, since in coastal sites, such as Shuni and Caesarea, only kurkar masonry stones were utilized. The very meager ceramic finds included fragments from the Roman and Byzantine periods.
