Stratum I
Two terrace walls, 6 m apart (W1, W3; length 9 m, width 1 m; Fig. 2) that were built of two rows of large fieldstones founded on bedrock and a core of small and medium-sized fieldstones were exposed. A section of another wall (W2) and a staircase (width 1 m) built of dressed stones next to it was discovered between Walls 1 and 3. Similar steps were exposed in the middle of W3 and it seems that they were used to pass from one terrace to the other. A natural underground cavity (L110; 1.0 × 1.5 m) was exposed near W2.
The soil fill of the terrace (Loci 102 and 106) contained potsherds from different periods, including holemouth jars (Fig. 3:1, 2) from the end of the Iron Age, a jar (Fig. 3:3) from the Hellenistic period, a jar (Fig. 3:4) from the Early Roman period (first century BCE) and a bowl (Fig. 3:5) from the Late Roman period (third–fourth centuries CE). In addition, a Hasmonean coin was found (IAA 107172).
Stratum II
A quarry (L112; Fig. 4) that consisted of the negatives of masonry stones (average size 0.5 × 1.0 m) that had been extracted and transported, hewn channels (Loci 108, 111) and a circular installation (L109) was revealed.
A concentration of quarrying debris (L103; 1.6 × 1.8 m) that rested directly on the negatives of the stones (L112) was exposed in the center of the southeastern area. Of the extracted masonry stones, a single one (0.35 × 0.40  × 0.70 m; Fig. 5) had remained in situ and was surrounded by severance channels. Another severance channel (L111; 0.35 × 0.40 × 2.80 m), aligned east-west, was identified east of L112.
The quarry extended farther to the northwest, beyond W3, in an area where another severance channel (L108; 0.4 × 0.6 × 3.8 m) was exposed. Next to it was a round, non-plastered installation (L109; diam. 1 m, depth 0.15–0.40 m; Fig. 6) whose function is unclear, although it may have been a collecting vat of a winepress whose treading floor was part of the rock-hewn surface (L113; 1.5 × 1.7 m).
