A water cistern and nearby meager building remains were exposed (Fig. 1). The bell-shaped cistern (diam. 5.5 m, depth c. 4.4 m to level of partial collapse of cistern’s ceiling), which had a circular, rather small opening (diam. c. 0.7 m), was hewn in soft chalk bedrock and coated with a thick layer of hydraulic plaster (4 cm) mixed with organic material that was preserved on the opening and the ceiling. To the northeast of the cistern, a plastered, rock-hewn channel and a natural fissure to its south conveyed surface runoff to the cistern. On either side of the smoothly quarried bedrock surface (in the west and east), two courses of a fieldstone-built wall were found. No datable finds were discovered.
