Caption Sounding at the south face of the qiblah wall at the Phase 1 miḥrāb (May 2011). A bed of flat stones supports a foundational half circle of only header-laid blocks, on which the miḥrāb‎ was built. The curved and dressed blocks utilised recycled architectural elements of hard limestone sourced from Roman-period buildings. Four courses survived. The thick build-up of street levels and a major collapse deposit against the miḥrāb and qiblah wall attest to the age of the mosque
