Only quarry remains were documented at Sites 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 (Fig. 2).
Site 3. Numerous rock-cuttings were found. A winepress complex is in the center of the site; it has a treading floor and a collecting vat, above which are two modern troughs that cover a bell-shaped cistern (depth 4.3 m; Fig. 3). Burial caves with loculi, surrounded by meager walls, are located east of the treading floor. These walls were presumably meant to convert the burial caves into animal pens.
Site 4. Potsherds from the Roman and Byzantine periods and a winepress complex were found. The winepress consists of a rock-hewn treading floor and a square vat (1.0×1.2 m; Fig. 4), which contained potsherds from the Roman and Byzantine periods.
Sites 5, 6, 16, 17. Remains of winepresses; the partly preserved treading floors were visible on the surface (Fig. 5). The negatives of stones could be seen on the treading floors. These were hewn and detached from the sides of the floors after the winepresses were no longer in use and were converted to quarries.
Site 10. Remains of walls and fragments of pottery vessels from the Roman period were found south of the Khirbat Yaquq valley, slightly above the western cliff of Highway 65 (Fig. 1; map ref. 244497/753677). Cupmarks on the surface of a bedrock outcrop were noted at the end of the site.
Cemetery – Khirbat Yaquq
At Sites 11, 12 and 13, south of the national water carrier and east of Highway 65, is Khirbat Yaquq (Fig. 1; map ref. 245293/754874), whose remains from the Roman and Byzantine periods are today buried beneath the remains of the Arab village Yaquq. Rock-cut cist graves, mostly filled with soil, were found in the survey (Fig. 6). Two partly open tombs were surveyed. Rock-cuttings on the surface might be cave entrances and some appear to be the openings of shaft tombs. A tomb is located in the eastern section of Highway 65, at Site 12, opposite the Tomb of Habaquq. A shaft and loculi are visible in the cliff section (Fig. 7). The tomb dates to the Second Temple period, similar to the dating of the cemetery near the Yaquq site.
Site 14. A prominent and neat stone heap built of fieldstones. The bottom courses were meticulously constructed using long flat stones. Presumably, this is a tumulus or a dolmen and a burial cell is located beneath the heap of stones.
Site 15. A modern ruin; it comprises a large building (Fig. 8), cisterns (Fig. 9) and numerous terrace walls that surround it. Northwest of the building and the cistern is a Muslim cemetery. The modern settlement, Arab el-Suweid, is located on top of a Roman site, whose potsherds are scattered across the surface. It seems that at least some of the stones used in the construction of the modern building were taken from the Roman site, and the cisterns at the site might also date originally to the Roman period.
Site 18 turned out to be a natural cave.
