The plan of the building where the Tel Rehov house shrine and nude goddesses were found is unusual: Four consecutive small rooms, each lined with benches, flanked the western side of the building’s main space. The finds suggest that the building had some cultic function or perhaps was a storeroom for cultic objects. Not only was the house shrine excavated here, but in one of its rooms, a heavy clay crate was found with its lid off and flipped over next to it, as though it had been emptied and abandoned in haste. This offers a glimpse into the fiery end to this building and others of Rehov in the ninth century B.C.E.
