Transcript PALMYRA. 449 r0ad broken away by the force of the river, the mountain being cut through, by Julius Yerus, the Legate of S ria, at the cost {impendus) of the Abilenians." The modern Turkish pashas make roads in the same way, by impressing the labour of the people in the most arbitrary and oppressive manner. On a high cliff south of the village of Suk is the Wely or Kabr Habil, the reputed tomb of Abel. The Muslim tradition has it that Cain, after carrying about the corpse of his brother Abel for one hundred years, at last laid it down on this hill. It is now one of the sacred shrines to which the Muslims make reverent pilgrimages. The length of Abel's tomb is nine yards, and it is plainly a part of an old wall, which can still be traced for twice that length. Near it are the ruins of a small temple of hewn stone, forty-five feet long and twenty-seven feet broad. There are three sarcophagi 1 a vault under the eastern |i The district around was called Abilene, and is men- tion^ by St. Luke (iii. i), Who sa>'s that John the Bap- ** began preaching « in the 58 WATERFALL OF THE UPPER BARADA, NEAR ZEBEDANY. Here the stream is augmented by the outfall of Wady el Kurn.
