Description:According to the fabric it should be dated to the Byzantine period. The incised inscription is from recent times.

I see the letters kuf lamed ayin - these letters are often used with names of God or Kabbalah .... perhaps a modern believer found a shard, inscribed the letters and dropped it on the Temple Mount or more likely in your pile?
