Transcript PHILIP'S FOUNTAIN. 207 As we approach the capital the number of traditional sites increases, and the scenes of many scriptural events are grouped at convenient distances round the Holy City. The traveller who crosses the bare ridge behind 'Ain Karim by the curious cairns which form such conspicuous features on the sky-line from the neighbourhood of Jerusalem, finds his way down to the flat stony valley called Wady-el-Werd, the " Vale of Roses," and here on the south side of the valley we find a fifteenth-century traditional site in the fountain called by the natives 'Ain Haniyeh, but by the Christians Philip's Fountain (see page 210). The spring breaks out from beneath a kind of masonry apse flanked by Corinthian pilasters, and probably marking the site of an early chapel. A small niche exists in the apse, and remains of masonry are scattered round in the valley bed. It is difficult to understand how the tradition became attached to this site, or how the chariot of the Ethiopian servant of Queen Candace can have been supposed to have escaped entire destruction in the rugged and pathless ravine where the spring breaks out. It is, however, certain that the tradition was transferred at a late period from another site. In the fifteenth century it is first mentioned, WELL OF ZACHARIAS AND ELISABETH, 'AIN KARIM. Near the supposed site of their summer dwelling, where the Virgin is said to have visited them.
