Avi Ofer was unaware of the Early Bronze Age wall and gateway Hammond excavated because they were unpublished and had been reburied in the 1970s. Ofer interpreted the small segment he found as a straight continuation of the Middle Bronze Age II wall running east from Hammond’s tower. But the location and alignment of the segment also fits into the proposed plan of an eastern gate tower. The author expresses gratitude to Ofer for sharing information about his excavation during the 1980s prior to its publication.
