    "The valuables might have been hidden in the cave by local residents who fled there during the period of governmental unrest stemming from the death of Alexander, a time when the Wars of the Diadochi broke out in Israel between Alexander’s heirs following his death. Presumably the cache was hidden in the hope of better days, but today we know that whoever buried the treasure never returned to collect it."

The archaeologists and members of the caving club returned to the site and found evidence of human habitation -- including pottery and other artifacts dating from the Chalcolithic period 6,000 years ago to the Hellenistic period around 2,300 years ago, Discovery News reported.
