An agricultural wall, aligned northwest-southeast, was exposed. The wall, built of two rows of limestone, was preserved a single course high (length 2 m, width 0.8 m, height 0.2–0.4 m). A course of limestone collapse was exposed in the vicinity of the wall, particularly to the east.
The artifacts found next to the wall included a bowl fragment (Fig 2:1) that dated to the end of the Roman–beginning of the Byzantine periods (second–fourth centuries CE) and a jar fragment (Fig 2:2) that dated to about the same period (third–fourth centuries CE).
A heap of lime stones (thickness 2 m), devoid of any other finds, which may be the result of a modern digging, was exposed below the surface in a layer of terra rossa soil (min. thickness 4 m).
An agricultural wall, aligned northwest-southeast, was exposed. The wall, built of two rows of limestone (min. length 3.5 m, width 1.1–1.6 m, height 0.45 m; Fig. 3) and a core of small stones, was preserved a single course high.
A fragment of a cooking pot (Fig 2:3), dating to the end of the Second Temple period (first century BCE–first century CE), was found in the core of the wall. The latter was probably built at this time or later, until the beginning of the Byzantine period, which is consistent with the dating of other remains in the area.
A section of a field wall (length 7.5 m, height 0.7 m; Fig. 4), oriented northeast-southwest, was exposed. The wall was built of a double row of medium (average dimensions 0.2 × 0.3 × 0.4 m) to large (average dimensions 0.4 × 0.5 × 0.6 m) fieldstones and a core of small stones; it was preserved three–four courses high.
Four fragments of pottery vessels were found, including a mortarium (Fig 2:4), a jar (Fig 2:5) and a jug (Fig 2:6) that dated to the Persian–Hellenistic periods, and a jug fragment (Fig 2:7) that dated to the Hellenistic period (second century BCE), which was found at the base of the enclosure. It is suggested that the wall was built during the Hasmonean era or slightly later.
