Location and geographical Features

 

Description

There is a small and ancient waterbed to the east of the mound. The pottery shards found on the rock slope immediately to the southeast and surrounding fields point to Hellenistic/Roman and medieval settlements. A road on the southern slope leads up to the top, while the northern slope was partly destroyed by soil conveyance.
