Engraved on Surface 1 of the northern wall in Cave 2.
Several specially smoothed surfaces engraved with inscriptions were found on the northern wall of Cave 2. Due to the peeling off of the rock and later engravings, only a few lines on Surface 1 (ca. 85x50 cm) can be deciphered. Height of the letters is irregular and between 2-7 cm.
