Ancient remains dating to the Roman period (second–third centuries CE; Fig. 2) were discovered in two squares, once the topsoil was removed using mechanical equipment (depth 0.6 m). Remains of an ancient road running in a general north–south direction were exposed. The roadbed (exposed length 4.9 m, width c. 3 m) was constructed of unworked limestones of various sizes, laid on a layer of tamped clay overlying the bedrock (L14; Fig. 3). The stone roadbed was bounded on the west by a dry-construction wall (W30) consisting of a single course of medium size fieldstones, and founded on the layer of clay (Fig. 4). A few pottery sherds were discovered, including bag-shaped jars (Fig. 5:3, 4) dating to the Roman period (third–fourth centuries CE). No boundary wall was found on the eastern side of the roadbed. Remains of a poorly-built fieldstones wall were revealed c. 15 m to the north (W16, exposed length 2 m). One course was preserved, set on clay foundation above the bedrock. Several pottery sherds dating to the Roman period were gathered, including a bowl and a globular jar from the second–fourth centuries CE (Fig. 5:1, 2)
A section of a fieldstone-built road, delimited on the west by curbstones, was exposed in the excavation. The road was apparently part of the road-network that led from Caesarea to Legio, sections of which were excavated in the past. The few pottery sherds found in the roadbed date it to the Roman period.
