The site is a kurkar
hill in Nah
alat Yehuda, in the northern part of Rishon Le-Z
iyyon. Remains of rock-hewn burial caves (HA
18-19:10; 40:13 [Hebrew]) dating to the Roman period had previously been found in the area, as well as building remains (HA
4:15 [Hebrew]) dating to the same period. Just to the north of the kurkar
hill, settlement remains dating mostly to the Roman period (HA-ESI 121
), which included a worn fragment of a vessel that appears to be a measuring cup, were exposed.
