As the necropolis has not yet been systematically excavated, the age and specific context of the plates could not be determined. Eisenberg states that the age of the necropolis may likely fall within the broad Hellenistic-Byzantine time range, as does the nearby Hippos-Sussita polis, which has been extensively excavated. But they were found outside of graves, not inside, so it is difficult to determine the provenance as they could not be associated with surrounding artifacts and human remains within the internments.
