The only publications of this site to date are Emmanuel Damati, “Hilkiah’s Palace,” in Between Hermon and Sinai, Memorial to Amnon, ed. Magen Broshi (Jerusalem: Yedidim, 1977), pp. 93–113 (in Hebrew), and Damati, “The Palace of Hilkiya,” Qadmoniot 15:4 (60), 1982, pp. 117–121 (in Hebrew). I am grateful to Dr. Hanan Eshel for bringing these references to my attention.

Although Hilkiah’s palace is in Idumea (where Herod’s family came from) rather than Judea, the two areas shared the same culture at that time.
