Notes:
 Recorded elevation probably very wrong. Small mound. 2 mud brick structures visible (A-11, A-12). A-11 may be Islamic Period. A-12 definitely Pre-Islamic. Top of A-11 about 20m off the wadi floor. Large stone wall visible to the west of A-11, in a cut near the bottom of the tell. See A. al-Saqqaf’s (& Sedov’s?) article in AAE about this site.
