Transcript MOUNT HOR AND THE CLLFFS OF EDOM. 225 It is customary for Mohammedan pilgrims, before ascending to the tomb, to sacrifice a kid, goat, or sheep on a high platform or rock ledge called Aaron's Terrace, ^;\* r$**o (Settuh Harun), at the base of the mountain, but within sight of the wely. Burck- hardt, the pioneer of explorers of this region, travelled in the guise of a poor Mohammedan pilgrim, and hired a guide east of Petra to lead him through the city to Aaron's shrine that he might sacrifice there, and thus it was that he contrived to see the wonders of the valley. The guide led him to Aaron's terrace. Burckhardt killed the goat at a spot where he observed a number of heaps of stones. While he was in the act of slaying the animal his guide called out, "O Harun, look upon us! it is for you we slaughter this victim ! O Harun, protect and forgive us! O Harun, be content with our good intentions, for it is but a lean goat! letter of admission to the convent of st. Catherine. q Harun, smooth our path, and praise Formerly travellers were drawn up into the convent through the pent-house shown T»u' above; now, however, if the letter thus received is found satisfactory they are 1 t tUp J orr[ Qf aU creatures ! 1 UlS admitted by a side door.
