A Round Chamber Inscription

A Round Chamber Inscription

Detail of the doorway that is the entrance to Tunnel IV that leads to the famous "Hezekiah's Tunnel."  This may have been the original starting point for Hezekiah's Tunnel!

To the right of the doorway is a carved frame of an inscription that Gershon Galil claims to have read and translated.
