Izbet Sarta is the Arabic name of a site 3 km east of Biblical Aphek, which bears unique and clear remains from the Iron Age I.
Being so, it is tempting to identify the site with Even Ha’ezer, from where the Israelite advanced to confront the Philistines, and eventually lost the Ark of the Covenant (I Sam 4).
