It is highly probable that the Roman temple was erected on a site already regarded as sacred, and that from the earliest times this had been the chief centre of worship in Damascus. Here, perhaps, stood the " House of Rimmon," the Syrian god, where Naaman, in his newly awakened faith in the power of the God of Israel, deposited the two mule-loads of earth which he had brought out of Palestine (see 2 Kings v. 17, 18), and perhaps it was here that Ahaz saw the altar, the beauty of which so much pleased him that " he sent to Urijah the priest the fashion and the pattern of it, according to all the workmanship thereof," that one precisely like it might be erected in Jerusalem (see 2 Kings xvi. 10, 11).
