At the top of the hill, part of a building that covered an area of c. 1,600 sq m (36 × 45 m) was exposed. It was surrounded by walls built of headers and stretchers (width 1.2–1.4 m). Walls of indigenous limestone founded on chalk bedrock were discovered inside the building, whose plan was that of a covered courtyard enclosed by rooms along the outer walls. The ceramic finds dated to the Hellenistic and Early Roman periods.
