Abstract
Description
Sign describing the agricultural estate north of the audience hall. The sign reads: Hjam's Palace was not just a place of leisure. The Northern Area in front of you was probably and agricultural estate or "diya'"during the Umayyad and Abbasid periods. Perhaps first built as an eliste residence in the Umayyad period before 750 AD, its agricultural activities are indicated by the grape press to your left. The estate continued in the Abbasid period (750-950) indicated by a small mosque, houses, and stables for horses.
