Translation of the text on the sign:

Pressure surface of Oil mill
The pickling substrate was part of the squeezing facility at the oil mill.
This facility combines two facilities: a pickling substrate and a central collecting tank.
The baskets of olive paste were arranged on a perforated wooden board, which was placed over an opening from the whole stone, and the sap flowed directly down into it.

Pickling substrate
Origin: Ramla
Early Islamic period (6th-8th centuries AD)
Authority No. 2006-761
