Transcript TALIELEL-FUL. 217 mound by the Royal Engineers show it to be an artificial platform, supported by rude walls, having originally either a lower surrounding platform or flights of steps leading up. There is nothing to show the date of the structure, nor is there any known reference to it in history; but its commanding position seems to indicate that it may have been intended for a beacon. Jerusalem is plainly seen from the top, and almost all the towns of Benjamin as far north as Bethel are visible. There are no traces of any other buildings round the platform, and the site is that of an isolated monument, not of a former city or village. It is curious that so cautious To the north-west, in the highest part of the village, are the ruins of a tower with ancient substructions. a writer as the Dr. Robinson should have identified Taliel - el - Ful with Gibeah of Saul. In the first place there is no connection between the two names, nor is the distance between Taliel-el-Ful and Jerusalem more than two-thirds that mentioned by Josephus as separating Gabaoth Saule from the capital. The latter village was by the " Valley of Thorns;" and we are thus, apparently, directed to Gibeah of Benjamin, standing on the brink of the present Wady Suweinit, " the valley of the little thorn tree," which runs beneath the ancient cliff of Seneh, or " the thorn bush." Gibeah also was in view of Michmash, and the latter place is invisible from Taliel-el-Ful; while, as already noticed, there are no remains of any town nearer than Sh'afat to this curious conical stone 29
