Cave 1 (length 6.3 m, width 2.85–3.60 m, height 1.7 m). Two hewn niches (0.15 × 0.15 m, height 0.2 m) in the northern wall of the cave contained lamps.
Cave 2 (length 3.8 m, width 3.7 m, height 2.2 m).
Cave 3 (length 4.5 m, width 2.6 m, height 3.1 m).
Cave 4 (length 5.6 m, width 2.4 m, height 2.25 m).
Cave 5 (length 6.3 m, width 4.4 m, height 2.5 m).
Cave 6, to the northeast of Cave 3, was surveyed and documented. The cave’s entrance (0.4 × 0.6 m) led to a narrow passage and a step and then, to a square chamber (2.4 × 2.5 m) and a rock-hewn corridor (length 2.4 m, width 0.6 m, height 1.3 m). Three hewn kokhim with arched ceilings were cut in the southern and western walls of the cave: Kokh 1 (length 1.1 m, width 0.6 m), Kokh 2 (length 2.0 m, width 0.65 m) and Kokh 3 (length 1.2 m, width 0.5 m). The facades of the kokhim (height 0.65 m) were decorated with rock-hewn rectangular frames. An opening (width 0.6 m) in the eastern wall of the cave led to a circular chamber (diam. 2.1 m, height 1.2 m).
Cave 7 (Fig. 3) was located in the center of a precipitous slope, 25 m west of Caves 1–6. The cave was discovered filled with soil; three hewn steps led from its entrance (L10) to a chamber (3.0 × 3.5 m). A natural niche that tapered inward was in the northern wall of the cave. The longitudinal probe (Loci 11, 12; width 1 m) excavated in the cave revealed a soil fill that had been piled up arbitrarily on the floor of the cave.
The Water Cistern (Fig. 4) was located on the slope, 65 m north of Caves 1–6. The cistern was bell-shaped (diam. 4.6 m, depth 3.6 m), its ceiling had collapsed inward and its walls were coated with a single layer of light brown plaster.


Fragments of pottery vessels from the Hellenistic period, including bowls (Fig. 5:1, 2), jugs (Fig. 5:3–5) and flasks (Fig. 5:6, 7), were found in front of Caves 1 and 2. The fill in Cave 7 contained pottery fragments from the Hellenistic period, including bowls (Fig. 6:1–6), jars (Fig. 6:7–14) and from the Early Roman period until the first century CE––jars (Fig. 6:15–17) and a jug (Fig. 6:18).
