David Hully/Tel Miqne-Ekron Excavation Project

Schematic reconstruction of the Ekron cultic complex. Details show the finds from each of the three small rooms. The southern room (right) contained a bamah with a mysterious iron ingot lying on top of it, an iron knife, and a bronze chariot linchpin. The middle room contained two bowls, a flask with red concentric circles, and fragments of a wheeled iron cult stand. In the northern room (left), which had three superimposed floors, a collection of unusual vessels was found alongside the wall on the middle floor.
