Cave 2 & Inscription

Cave 2 & Inscription

View of the entrance to the northern most of the two caves along the lower line that bear inscriptions.

Just to the right of the (broken) entranceway note the inscription carved into the limestone.  It reads, from right to left, TBWH (= Tobiah)—the name of the family that had an estate here.

Note the three recessed insets in the doorway.  Originally the opening covered by an iron fence did not exist.
