Transcript THE PHOENICIAN PLAIN. 57 memories behind it. Egypt and Assyria may carry us many centuries farther still, but what is their direct connection with us when compared with Phoenicia ? That strange and mysterious people, where are they ? What descendants have they left ? Where can we trace them ? They were scarcely of the land. Like some fowl of the sea, which never touches shore or visits the land, save to rear its young, the Phoenician asked no territory, conquered no nations, yet was found on every coast. These original settlements of Tyre and Sidon, what are they ? Along that straight, monotonous, havenless Syrian coast, the very last we should have imagined to have fostered a spirit of commerce and enterprise, here and there in front of some sandspits, or at the foot of some headland, there rises from the water a ridge of reefs, or a rocky islet. Like some sea-swallow, the Phoenician seized on this. There he made his perch, and took breath for a while between his adventurous voyages. Such rocky islets or headlands are Tyre (see above), Sidon (see Dao*e 4.^) BerytUS, Gebal, BotrVS, And the neighbouring village of Hanawieh, with a view of the peninsula of Tyre as \-e£5^J/' "^ J it appears from this spot. Tripolis, and Aradus [the modern Beirut (see pages 28 and 41), Jebeil, Batrun, Tarabalus (see pages 5 and 9), and Ruad], most of them very similar in position, and three of them—Jebeil, Batrun, and Tarabalus, in their little reef of rocks fronting and parallel to the headland, close reproductions of the site of Tyre. Tyre, though historically the daughter of Sidon, soon became the leading city of the KABR HIRAM. [anawi : appears ]
