Abstract The paper provides a preliminary discussion of the pottery found by Reich and Shukron in the Rock-Cut Pool near the Gihon Spring. This pottery has far-reaching implications for the dating of various parts of the Jerusalem water systems, including the Siloam Tunnel (Reich and Shukron, see this issue Tel Aviv, pp. 3–13). The authors date the pottery from the pool to the iron IIA, probably not late in this period, at the end of the 9th century BCE.
