JERUSALEM: Israeli archaeologists have unearthed the relics of a Hellenistic farm in the heart of the coastal city of Tel Aviv, dated to about 2,150 years ago, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said on Sunday.

The farm was discovered at the corner of two main streets ahead of the construction of a train station, as part of the light rail system being built in the city, the IAA noted.

The farm, cultivating grain, vineyards, and brewing wine, was probably abandoned during the Hasmonean occupation, in the second half of the second century BC, it added.

The relics of the farm included at least eight rooms hewn in the rock, arranged in two parallel rows, with passages and windows between them.

Dozens of pottery jars' fragments were exposed on the room floors, probably used to store oil, wine, seeds, and other agricultural products.
