The cave has a main chamber (3.3 × 3.3 m, 1.1–1.2 m high) and 12 loculi (c. 0.6 m wide, c. 1 m high, c. 1.9 m long). The loculi appear to have been hewn to a certain standard and their dimensions were generally similar. Two double-width cells (c. 1.2 m) that led through an arched opening to inner loculi were found in the southeast corner of the chamber.
Underground cavities and burial caves are known at Kibbutz Sasa. Three of these caves were excavated in the past and yielded relatively rich archaeological finds, which enabled them to be dated to the Roman period and attributed to the Jewish settlement that was located there until the Byzantine period (Davis and Zias 1975; Syon and Nagar 2014), after which they were used until the Mamluk and Ottoman periods (Permit No. A-6658). The currently excavated burial cave adds further detail to the map of Jewish burial sites around the site and increases our understanding of the ancient underground features used by Sasa’s inhabitants in former times (Fig. 6).
