A basilical church dedicated to St. Bacchus was discovered by Y. Porath in 1986 c. 300 m southwest of
The church, 27 by 11.7 m, faces east. It is built of large, well-dressed ashlars of soft limestone. The structure consists of an atrium to its west, from which a flight of steps leads to the narthex, and a square hall with a nave, two aisles, and an apse. It was roofed with wooden beams and covered with ceramic roof tiles. Adjoining the church, north of the atrium, is a square compound with an olive-oil press, cistern, and entrance room leading to the church’s atrium. About 20 m northeast of the church is a rock-cut reservoir surrounded by three arcosolia tombs.
