Transcript MAGDALA. 307 his children and finally his wife, and, casting their dead bodies down the precipice, he ended by throwing himself headlong after them "(" Antiquities," xiv. ., -__6; "Wars," i. 16, 4). 1 0> 0 Thus these robbers were at last subdued, and Herod gained thereby not only the good-will of the inhabitants of Galilee, but added security to his own government. Many of these caves cannot be visited to-day without resorting to the use of ropes, after the manner of Herod's soldiers; but the result of such a visit would fully repay the struggle. Only by visiting them can one realise their great extent, and the skill with which they were protected by walls, provided with cisterns, and connected together by passages and archways. This home of robbers became afterwards the abode of hermits. Passing down the Valley of Pigeons, we very soon reach the plain of Gennesaret, near its southern end, and in twenty minutes we arrive at the wretched village of Mejdel, which is all that remains of the Magdala of the times of our Lord (see page 308). The houses, which are few in number, are little more than hovels made of mud and stone, while the people are degraded and filthy, and it would be difficult to tell whether the children or the dogs were the more impudent. The situation, however, on the borders of the lake and at the foot of the mountain, is a beautiful one; and the views over the plain of Gennesaret and the Sea of Galilee, and up to Mount Hermon, are natural attractions of THE ™}:£r™ SIDE OF T WlllCh even SOme of the Droud Cities of the muntn/ This castle consists of caverns connected by passages j^ kj^xkx v.ili^ ui LiiCLUUllLiy opposite to it stands Irbid, the ancient Arbela.
