English Text:

The southern temple was in use from the Middle Bronze Age until the Late Bronze Age (17th-14th centuries BCE). The temple was originally a prominent structure, with wide, well-constructed walls, and its three strata of stone pavements attest to its continuous existence. A niche in the western wall, directly opposite the entrance, probably held the divine statue (which was not preserved). A deep, stone-lined pit (favissa) located in the center of the temple contained many clay vessels, including ritual ones, and numerous bones of animals.
