This site was surveyed for the Delta Survey in 2018 by a team led by Dr P. Wilson:

The site is 19.63km NNW of Sidi Selim, and lies entirely within Lake Burullus. The remaining area of the site is 500 by 320m, so slightly reduced from its 2007 extent. The site seems to have been at the end of a river branch outlet into the lake and perhaps lies upon an ancient levée system which continued across the lake to a sea-outlet at Mastoruh directly to the north. The Corona satellite images shows the ‘'sland' at the end of a promontory, with a parallel area to the south-east now seemingly lost. The mound was not very high, only 2m at most above the level of the water in the fish farms.

The pottery material has a date range of the 4th to 10th century AD, but this depends upon the inexact dating of long-lived forms such as casserole dishes. Many fragments of glass were also found on the site, with a similar Roman to Late Roman date. The types of vessels included tear-bottles, lamps, small jars and bowls.

Some structures are visible on the magnetic map, including one distinctive circular feature at the north and several large structures to the southwest.
