Two squares were excavated down to bedrock. The soil fill contained numerous masonry stones, some of which were dressed, a few pieces of mosaic and many fragments of pottery vessels from the Byzantine period. A coin dating to the end of the fourth century CE (383–395 CE) was discovered right above bedrock. The excavation is located within the site of Khirbat el-Khamis (A. Kloner, The Survey of Jerusalem, the Southern Sector, 2000:57*–58*, Site 152).
