The excavation reached bedrock at a depth of c. 1.7 m below surface (Fig. 1). Two small sections of adjacent stone walls (W1013, W1015) directly on bedrock seem to be the earliest architectural remains, dating to the Hellenistic (Strata VI, V) or possibly to the Early Roman period (Stratum IV).
A stone wall (W1005; exposure length 5 m; Fig. 2) was built over these walls and formed a corner with another small wall section (W1014). A packed earth floor (L1006), partially plastered and incorporating a few flagstones, was contemporary with W1005 and W1014 and may date to the Middle Roman period (Stratum III). The mixed nature of the pottery assemblages in these levels precluded reliable dating.
Two later parallel walls (W1009, W1010) that had cut into the Middle Roman stratum were associated with a fine plastered floor (L1002), which incorporated several flagstones and ran over the top course of the earlier W1005. Wall 1010 was adjacent to a small plastered pit (L1007A) or installation with rounded walls, which was only partially uncovered. This pit may be part of a food-processing or other industrial installation, whose nature is unclear. This stratum (I) is dated by potsherds to the Byzantine period (fifth century CE).
