Eighteen excavation squares and nine half squares were opened, revealing eleven kurkar-hewn tombs, a single one of which was excavated (Tomb K; Fig. 1). This was a haphazardly hewn burial complex, wherein the ceiling of the main chamber collapsed a long time ago. A recess in the northern wall and the remains of a step below it probably alludes to the tomb’s entrance that led to the main chamber. West of the entrance was a hewn kokh and three kokhim were hewn in the southern wall, opposite the entrance. Two arcosolia with a vaulted ceiling were exposed on either side of the hall. The kokhim and arcosolia were excavated to an elevation of 0.2 m above the kurkar floor, so as not to disturb any human remains.
Bottles and plastic bags from the 1980s in the tomb indicate that the complex was either excavated or plundered in the past (no documentation was traced). Poorly preserved and non-articulated osteological remains were found in the tomb. These represented at least four individuals, three adults (one 18–25 years of age) and one child.
The area of the excavation undoubtedly lays within the limits of the Jewish cemetery, which is dated to the fourth–fifth centuries CE. Although no evidence to date the cave was found, the quarrying style resembles that of Roman- and Byzantine-period tombs known from previous excavations at the site.
