The Cave of the Lone Sarcophagus at Beit She’arim, a Jewish spiritual center of ancient Israel, 220-351 CE. After Sanhedrin (assembly) leader Rabbi Yehudah Hanassi died, the site became a holy necropolis. This rock-hewn courtyard was meant to hold coffins. Burial niches and arcades were made later.
