The cave was hewn in the qirton bedrock (height in south 2 m, in north 0.9 m, width 2.7–6.8 m, depth 3.6 m; Fig. 1). An irregular-shaped pit (length 1.75, width 1.3 m, depth 0.9 m) was hewn next to its northwestern wall. Above the floor of the cave and inside the pit were several potsherds, mostly of jars, dating to the Roman period.
