Anat Cohen-Weinberger, who did the study, sent us her analysis entitled “Petrographic Results of Clay from an Architectural Tile from Tel Dor.” It states: “The clay is highly calcareous containing foraminifers, that characterize the Taqiya marl Formation of the Paleocene Age. This Formation [appears in] outcrops over broad areas in Israel. The marl is accompanied by fragments of coralline alga, most probably the Amphiroa sp. This alga is a fossil director of the Quaternary coast, forming a dominant component of the sand in the northern Levantine coasts form Akko northward. Thus, the studied item is attributed to the Lebanese coast, or more specifically at the region between Tyre and Sidon or north of Tripoli.”
