Important remains, including walls and tombs, were found here in 1933-4, during modern building works, see Goodchild, Benghazi, p.11, and rock-cut tombs were excavated in 1973/4.

The text may be informal but the photograph suggests something more formal and the location perhaps a funerary inscription.
