Three probes were excavated and ancient remains were discovered directly below surface (depth c. 0.2 m). Wall sections (width c. 0.6 m) built of mud bricks were exposed in two probes (L101, L102; Fig. 1); these were probably sections of a wall from the synagogue compound’s enclosure wall. A section of a channel (length c. 4.5 m), oriented northeast-southwest, was exposed in the third probe (L103). It led to a cistern situated southeast of the synagogue. The channel (width c. 0.2 m) was built of limestone and covered with limestone tiles whose remains were discovered in its eastern part.
