– late Umayyad (context dated from 738-749),
– Abbasid to Fatimid (mid-8th – 11th centuries),
– Ayyubid to Mamluk (12th – 14th centuries).

4. small bowl with smooth, hollow stem (fig. 4) - Byzantine to late Umayyad contexts;
5. variant of Type 4: small bowl with hollow stem: narrow at the bottom and wider toward the top (fig. 5) - Umayyad to Mamluk contexts;
