Chapter Summary

Building 600 yielded artefacts and architectural elements that date to both the Iron Age and the Late Byzantine-Early Islamic periods. This chapter discusses briefly the architectural features which were either in place or were found scattered throughout the debris inside Building 600, along with those in topsoil layers outside the structure. It lists registration codes for architectural features. One fragment of a small marble column (or possible pilaster) was present in the debris of Room 606. This columnette is fluted on the diagonal and may have been part of the furniture of an earlier building. One of these architectural pieces is a monumental door jamb which was located on top of a mound of fallen wall stones above Room 608. A number of other jambs have locking holes, indicating the elaborate architectural features in Building 600.
