Fragments of the walls were found last year in the territory of the Protestant church. Even then, scientists assumed that they belonged to the period of the Roman Empire. A year later, this assumption was confirmed.

Shelves for scrolls were found on the walls, but they were not preserved. According to archaeologists, their number could reach 20,000 pieces.
