Transcript NAIN. 279 steep descent to the sacred village on its north face. The latter will be able to reconnoitre all the scenes on which we have dwelt at Zerin from a different point of view ; the geologist will find here his first example of the basaltic structure so frequent to the north and east, for Duhy is simply the bold and abrupt end of a great upheaved basaltic dyke amidst the rolled and denuded limestone hills on all sides of it. There is a little village on the top, with a holy place (Neby Duhy) of the Mohammedans. The view is very extensive, and for the first time we can trace the great range of Bashan, the peaks in the east of the Hauran on the one side, to the sea by Carmel on the other.
