Transcript 468 PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. HISTORICAL SKETCH OF BA'ALBEK. The most ancient allusion to Ba'albek is in the prophecy of Amos i. 5 (787 B.C.): " I will cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven (Bikath Aven); " the Hebrew word Bika is the same with the Arabic Buka'a. Aven is given in the Septuagint as On, the domestic name of the Egyptian Helio- polis. The allusion is clearly to the Buka'a of Ba'albek, and the Eden mentioned in the same verse is supposed to be the Paradisus of Ptolemy, about forty miles north of Ba'albek.

Josephus, however, places it near to Gezer, which would indicate that it THE SIX COLUMNS OF THE GREAT TEMPLE, BA'ALBEK.
