The victory marked the rise of the Caliphate as it expanded outside the Arabian peninsula, and marked the first major clash between Muslims and Christians.
Archaeologists found ancient artifacts in a salvage excavation prior to the construction of a new neighborhood near Tel Aviv.
The artifact was discovered some 40 years ago in the Galilee village of Arbel by one of its first residents, the late Tova Haviv.
The stone was found by a "Project 500" worker from the Parks and Nature Authority while cleaning and preparing nature paths in the Nitzana National Park.
This excavation is now focusing on figuring out how this pagan altar came to be part of the church wall and what the inscription on it means.
Three sarcophagi containing the sole specimens from the Urartu Kingdom were found at the site.
In July, COGAT officials located the font near the city of Bethlehem, together with the Bethlehem District Coordination and Liaison Office and the cooperation of the Etzion Regional Brigade.
According to scholars, the church, which used pagan architecture, was founded on the site when Christianity became the official religion in Israel in the fourth century CE.
