Area A (Fig. 3). Remains of a rectangular building were exposed; its three walls (W1–W3) were built of limestone and preserved a single course high (Fig. 4). The walls did not survive to their entire length. Walls 1 and 2 formed a corner, while Wall 3 might have adjoined the northern part of W1. The floor of the building was not preserved. Soil fill (L147) discovered beneath the presumed floor level yielded a variety of pottery fragments that ranged in date from the second to sixth centuries CE and included bowls (Fig. 5:1–16), cooking vessels (Fig. 5:17–26), jars (Fig. 5:27–41), an amphora (Fig. 5:42), jugs (Fig. 5:43–45) and a juglet (Fig. 5:46). The soil levels discovered outside the building (L135, L156) yielded ceramic finds that were identical to those recovered from the building. Other finds discovered in the excavation of the building included several fragments of glass vessels dating to the Late Roman–Byzantine periods, as well as three bronze coins: one of Nero, struck in the mint at Ashqelon (54–68 CE; IAA 121665), the second coin dating to the years 364–375 CE (IAA 121663) and the third is a five nummi coin (522–537 CE; IAA 121664). Remains of two wall sections (W4, W5; width 0.65 m), built of limestone and preserved a single course high, were exposed south of the building. An ash pit (L126; Fig. 6) discovered above W5 postdated the wall. Soil fill containing ceramic finds identical to those in the building was discovered close to Walls 4 and 5.
Area B. A potsherd concentration that included Gaza jars (Fig. 7:13, 14), dating to the Byzantine period, was discovered.
Area C (Fig. 8). Remains of a modern wall (W11; exposed length 3 m; width 0.6 m; Fig. 9), built of limestone and incorporating a concrete pipe in its construction, were revealed. Soil fill discovered near the wall contained fragments of pottery vessels, including red-slipped bowls (Fig. 7:1–3) dating to the Byzantine period.
Area E (Fig. 10). Two sections of a floor (L721, L725; 8.5×11.0 m), composed of limestone and kurkar, were exposed. Robber trenches of walls (W21, W22), aligned east–west, were discovered at the northern and southern ends of the extensive northern floor section. Numerous fragments of pottery vessels dating to the Late Roman and Byzantine periods were discovered on the floor, including bowls (Fig. 7:4–11), a krater (Fig. 7:12), Gaza jars (Fig. 7:15–21), baggy-shaped jars (Fig. 7:22, 23) and jugs (Fig. 7:24–26). Several fragments of glass vessels dating to the Roman–Byzantine periods were also discovered on the floor, as well as five bronze coins: a coin from 364–375 CE (IAA 119883), a coin of Valentinian II (383–392 CE; IAA 119884), a coin of Theodosius I (383–395 CE; IAA 119881), a coin dating to the fourth century CE (IAA 119885) and a coin of Justinian I (527–538 CE; IAA 119880). Two other coins were found in the soil fill between the two sections of floor. One is a coin from the fourth century CE (IAA 119876) and the other is a follis of Justin I (518–527 CE; IAA 119875). Four other coins were discovered elsewhere in the excavation: two coins from the years 364–375 CE (IAA 119877, 119878), a coin from the fifth–sixth centuries CE (IAA 119882) and a fals from the Umayyad period (697–750 CE; IAA 119889).
Most of the architectural remains in the excavation were discovered in Areas A and E. These remains dated to the Roman and Byzantine periods. Due to the great distance between the two areas and the poor preservation of the remains, it is impossible to determine if the remains in Areas A and E belong to the same site.
