Notes:
 Stone ring about 14m NE–SW by about 11m NW–SE. Rectangular structure (A-20) adjacent. Also, a short stone wall. Both larger structures appear contemporary. Both structures are constructed of large upright stones and piled smaller stones. The area around and inside the stone ring is blackened and clearly visible from S-53 as a black mark. Many pieces of chipped jasper(?)—but they don’t appear to be tools. Stone ring appears to be an animal pen.

The area is known as Khumoseh.

Sherds are in poor condition, but all are tentatively Islamic.
