Two excavation squares were opened within the boundaries of Horbat Anusha (Fig. 2), in places where the preliminary antiquities inspections observed what seemed to have been rock-cuttings. A thin layer of hard limestone overlying soft limestone bedrock was exposed in the northern square (Fig. 3); no evidence of quarrying was noted. A few non-diagnostic pottery sherds and a bronze coin of Constantine II (fourth century CE) were discovered in the square (L104). Hard limestone and pockets of soft limestone were revealed in the southern square (Fig. 4); no signs of quarrying were noted but several abraded and non-diagnostic pottery sherds were found. The coin discovered shows that activity took place near Horbat Anusha during the Byzantine period.
