Stratum 3. Fragments of pottery vessels from Middle Bronze II, such as a jar’s rim (Fig. 3:1) were found in Square 2 (L112) and in another square, in a layer of terra rossa soil that overlay the dolomite bedrock. Two walls, exposed in Square 2, were built of medium and large fieldstones and founded on bedrock. Wall 1 was oriented north–south and Wall 2 was perpendicular to it (Fig. 2). A coin (IAA 100242), which dated to the Late Roman period (364–375 CE) and had no stratigraphic context as it penetrated into the stratum, was also found.
Stratum 2. A layer of gray soil was exposed in all three squares. It had no architectural remains, yet pottery vessels that dated to the Byzantine period were found, including a bowl (Fig. 3:2), a krater (Fig. 3:3), a plate (Fig. 3:4), jars (Fig. 3:5–10) and an amphora (Fig. 3:11). Fragments of glass vessels were found (below), as well as two coins: one from the reign of Justin II (573–574 CE; IAA 100244) and the other, dating to the years 591–592 CE (IAA 100240). In addition, metallic artifacts were uncovered and noteworthy among them was a bronze ornament in the image of a bird (Fig. 5).
Stratum 1. A layer of dark soil that had numerous burnt spots, pottery vessels, including a krater (Fig. 4:1) and a glazed plate fragment (Fig. 4:2), lumps of raw glass and two coins from the Umayyad period: one from the Damascus mint (IAA 100241) and the other from the Tiberias mint (IAA 100243). No architectural remains were found, other than a tomb without a grave marker.
