(33 of 59)
The holy of holies debir of the Arad temple is small (1.2m x 1.2m) it contained two flint stelae with traces of red pigment - however any writing they may have supported was unreadable, there were also two small stone incense altars both found lying on the second step - both were flat topped, not horned (cf. the incense altar from Megiddo).
The presence of the two stone tablets is also reminiscent of the biblical descriptions of the tabernacle.
