A pit excavated in the kurkar bedrock (L100;  3.2 ×

7.9 m, max. depth 2.2 m) contained burial remains. At the bottom of the pit’s western side were three hewn burial cavities (Fig. 1:3–5). In the eastern wall of the pit, which had no signs of quarrying or construction, a skeleton was discovered, in situ, at a depth of 0.3 m below surface (Fig. 1:1). Remains of a rock-cut partition (W101) were exposed in the southern section, at a depth of c. 2 m below surface; east of W101 a skull in a layer of brown soil, in situ, was found. To the south, along the continuation of the partition-wall line, the end of a vaulted niche that could be part of a rock-cut, vaulted burial chamber was uncovered. The burial cavities and the niche were covered over with sand and not excavated. Non-diagnostic potsherds and a lamp fragment, dating to the Byzantine period, were recovered from the excavation.
