In May and June 2007 and in July 2008, two salvage excavations and a probe were carried out along Monbaz Street in Jerusalem (Permit Nos. A-5113, A-5369; map ref. 221160/632255), prior to construction. The excavation, under the auspices of the Israel Antiquities Authority and financed by the Africa-Israel Company, was directed by O. Sion. It yielded building remains and other finds from the Byzantine and late Ottoman Periods, as well as small finds from the Second Temple period and the third–fifth centuries CE. Y. Rapuano studied the pottery, D.T. Ariel studied the coins and L. Habas studied the engraved stone slabs.
