Abba Cave

abba cave“Abba Cave” was found in 1970 during salvage excavations. It contained two rooms, one bearing a small bone box and an inscription stating this is the burial of “Matityahu” which was set by “Abba”.

Both the the bone box and the inscription are today at the Israel Museum. 

In 1982, the owner of the plot discovered another bone box, perhaps of Abba, the undertaker.
