At the southwestern end of a bedrock slope that had been damaged during development work, an area (2 × 2 m) excavated down to natural bedrock (depth c. 3 m), was opened. An irregular rock-hewn niche (1.5 × 1.6 m, height 1.1 m; Fig. 1) was discovered; its entrance (height c. 1.1 m, width c 0.9 m) was provided with a step (height 0.1 m). It seems that the niche was used for storage or was part of an installation, whose continuation to the west was not preserved.
Non-diagnostic potsherds were found in the northeastern corner of the niche.
