The northern area (5 dunams) consisted of four installastions.
Installation 3 (Figs. 2, 3) is a bell-shaped cistern (L101; diam. 0.7, depth 1.4 m). Remains of pale gray plaster were discerned on its sides and bottom. A small storage pool (L100; 1.0×1.2 m, depth 0.8 m) adjoined the southern side of the cistern and was connected to it by way of an opening hewn in its western side. The remains of an industrial mosaic floor were noted on the bottom of the pool.
Installation 5 (Figs. 2, 4). A rectangular installation (L107; 1.03×1.17 m, depth c. 0.25 m) was hewn c. 2 m south of the pool. At some point in time, the quarried area was made smaller with fill of small stones (L111) to fit in another installation (L106; 0.66×0.85 m). The installation was lined with ceramic body fragments that were covered with plaster and was paved with an industrial mosaic. The function of the two installations is unclear. It may have been a collecting vat that was sometimes made smaller and had originally belonged to a winepress, whose treading floor did not survive.
Installation 4 (Figs. 5, 6). A rectangular rock-cutting (L102; 1.30×2.85 m, depth 0.58 m) was discovered c. 3 m south of Installation 5. Four notches, two in each side, were hewn in the southern part of its western and eastern sides. The use of the installation is unclear, but it was probably connected to the winepress that was hewn c. 1.5 m to its south (Installation 7).
Installation 7 (Fig. 7). A winepress that consisted of a square treading floor (L103; 4.5×4.5 m; Fig. 8) whose bottom was plastered. The floor was partially destroyed by mechanical equipment. To the east of the floor was a rock-hewn collecting vat (L104; 1.7×1.9 m, depth c. 1.6 m; Fig. 9), coated with thick gray plaster and paved with an industrial mosaic. Only scant remains were preserved of a vat in whose southern side two steps were hewn. A sump (L113; 0.56×0.60 m, depth c. 0.3 m) whose sides were coated with gray plaster mixed with potsherds and its bottom was paved with a mosaic, was hewn in the northwestern corner of the collecting vat. A large quantity of ceramic tiles (L105; Fig. 10) was found in the layer of fill north of the collecting vat. It seems that the tiles did not originate from the winepress, but rather from another installation, possibly a bathhouse that did not survive and was originally located nearby.
The southern area (7.5 dunams) was opened south of Area A and two installations were exposed.
Installation 11 (Fig. 11). A hewn pit (L114; 1.18×1.70 m, depth 1.80 m) that was probably a collecting vat of a winepress whose treading floor, which extended to its east, did not survive. A small sump was hewn in the northeastern corner of the vat and two hewn cupmarks were located c. 2 m west of the vat.
Installation 10 (Figs. 12, 13). A small loculus (L115; 0.7×0.9 m, height 0.9 m)—part of a burial cave that did not survive—was hewn in a bedrock terrace below Installation 11. It was devoid of any archaeological remains. Two natural hollows in bedrock (Fig. 1:8, 9), located c. 40 m to the northeast, were cleaned with the aid of mechanical equipment and found to be devoid of archaeological remains.
