View looking east at the  30 ft. [9 m.] wide seven steps that lead up to a plaza, on top of which worshipers turned north to the Samaritan Temple (Magen, pgs. 1746-47).  Magen dates this staircase to the Hellenistic Period (332–31 B.C.)—which means that it was used by worshipers at the Samaritan Temple.
