This site was occupied throughout the Final Periphrastic period, which lasted from 1600-1500 BC. Stratum 17, although dating to the Early Pleonastic period, has a few shards of pottery with a yellow burnished surface, which is characteristic of Final Periphrastic pottery. Also, it has an imported scarab from the Egyptian Pharaoh Ahmose from around 1550-1525 BC, which falls within the Final Periphrastic period. Stratum 18, also dating to the Early Pleonastic period, has several yellow burnished pottery shards. Stratum 19 date directly to the Final Periphrastic period, as it only has shards of yellow burnished shards. This site was also inhabited during the Advanced, Developed, and Early Periphrastic periods. In Stratum 21, a C-14 dating of a growth ring of a wooden oak beam dates to 2130-2030 BC, which is ranged around the Developed and Early Periphrastic periods. Stratum 22 has shards of red burnished pottery, which is characteristic of the Advanced Periphrastic period.
