The cave consisted of two rock-cut chambers (1, 2) and a well-built impressive opening between them (L107; Fig. 2). The eastern chamber, Room 1, was an antechamber (preserved height c. 2 m) that led to the opening. A wall (W108; Fig. 3), built of two courses of roughly hewn medium-sized limestone, was exposed in the northern side of the room. Room 2, in the west, was the burial chamber (3×4 m). It was round and its ceiling was discovered in the excavation, 0.5 m above the floor of the room. The ceiling apparently collapsed in its entirety into the chamber. A shelf (1.0×1.5 m) probably used for burial (L106; Fig. 4) was hewn in the southern side of the room. A complete juglet and two intact lamps were discovered on the floor of the room and next to its western side was a depression that contained a concentration of bones; this was probably a standing pit. The impressive opening between the two rooms (1.33×1.50 m) was discovered blocked by masonry stones (Fig. 5). The opening was well constructed of ashlars, and included a stone lintel (0.35×0.52×1.60 m), two stone doorjambs (height c. 1 m) and a threshold stone (0.5×1.6 m). A stone door was preserved in the opening and one of its upper corners was broken, probably when the tomb was robbed in antiquity. Hinges carved in the door were set inside sockets, cut in the lintel and the threshold. A lock was installed in the northern doorjamb.
On the floors of the rooms were fragments of pottery vessels, some belonging to complete vessels that were broken there. The pottery included Kefar Hananya bowls, Types 1B, 1D (Fig. 7:1–3), dating to the second–third centuries CE, Kefar Hananya cooking pots, Types 4A, 4B, 4D (Fig. 7:4–7), dating to the first–fourth centuries CE, types of baggy-shaped jars (Fig. 7:8–10), widely used in the Galilee during the Roman period and dating to the second–fifth centuries CE, small juglets of pink clay decorated with shallow horizontal combing (Fig. 7:11, 12), dating to the second century CE, a round lamp without a handle, made of dark pink/brown clay, with a flat base and a discus that was intentionally broken. The lamp bears traces of red slip and a decoration of small circles on the upper part, close to its nozzle (Fig. 7:13); it dates to the first–second centuries CE, a round lamp with a handle, made of light pink clay with a flat base and a discus that was intentionally broken; indistinct remains of a decoration are visible on the upper part around the discus (Fig. 7:14). The lamp dates to the first–second centuries CE, a third lamp is a fragment of a plain, knife-pared lamp (Fig. 7:15), dating to the first–second century CE.
A small amount of fragmentary human bones, representing at least two individuals, 15–20 years of age and 25–35 years of age, was discovered in the cave. The bone fragments were poorly preserved and probably do not exhibit the actual number of individuals interred in the cave.
The dating of the cave was mainly based on the intact lamps and juglet, which were common to the region in the second century CE. The cave joins the tombs of the city of Zippori’s southern cemetery. The impressive construction of the opening apparently enticed robbers already in antiquity. It seems that after the cave was plundered its opening was blocked with building stones, possibly because of religious beliefs. Later, the ceiling collapsed into the cave and it remained sealed until the present time.
