Modestly placed in the far right corner of a small rectangular room, a square stone seat with a circular hole probably served as a toilet. The installation, excavated in the City of David, penetrates a thick plaster floor directly above an 8-foot-deep cavity. If a similar toilet equipped Eglon’s ‘aliyyaÆ, Ehud would presumably have removed the stone seat to gain access to the misdaÅroÆn below.
