The site lies c50m west of the road and is 1.5km south of Ashmun. Inspected for the Delta Survey in 2007 by a team led by J. Rowland, who reported as follows:

In 1912, Daressy noted the size of the mound at 15 feddans but also that it was being mined for sebakh. The area visited in 2007 included the small surviving area of mound and the surrounding fields. The small mound is some 4m higher than the surrounding land. A huge pile of bricks and ceramic sherds stands on the southern side of the kom where the farmers have removed them from the fields. There is also a large fragment of a black stone bowl standing together with the ceramic sherds. A block of limestone is built into the southeastern/eastern corner of the modern mud-brick house which sits on the eastern side of the kom. On the eastern side of the kom there is a steep section which shows c4.5m of stratigraphy from the top down into the surrounding fields. In this section we observed sherds of ceramics in the section and there were also amphora bases lying on the ground. Ceramics include those of Roman date, including fine terra sigillata wares. Red bricks were also seen in situ and may possibly represent Roman structures; there are also fragments of what may be vitrified bricks. On the northeastern side of the kom there is a more gentle slope and on the northern side there are clusters of sherds found in the fields. On the northwest corner of the site there is frequent distribution of fine ware in the fields. The kom is surrounded by fields and there is a very frequently distribution of sherds, up to 100 per m and down to c.30 per metre. The kom has modern farm building on the top and has been severely cut away for farming. The kom site, in total, allowing for the raised areas of land now largely cut away is estimated at some 250m north to south and 300m east to west.
