The installation (Fig. 1) was 0.1 m below surface. It consisted of a vat (L101; 2.2

× 2.6 m, depth c. 1.4 m), whose walls were lined with plaster mixed with pottery fragments from the Byzantine period; its floor, which sloped northward, was paved with an industrial mosaic. Several ribbed jar fragments from the Byzantine period were discovered in the installation, which was probably used for collecting liquids. Its eastern part was damaged in the past and modern building remains were located to its north.



The two shafts were c. 5 m apart (Fig. 2). They were only partially excavated out of fear they might collapse. The southern shaft (diam. c. 1.2 m, exposed depth c. 6 m) slightly widened toward the bottom. Several hewn recesses in its wall served as footholds for climbing in and out. The northern shaft was much narrower (diam. 0.9 m, exposed depth 3.5 m) and had a single hewn foothold in its wall. Modern finds were recovered from the shafts, which were probably entrances to water cisterns.
