Example text

The catacombs of Beth She#arāyim were all dug into the rock at the slope of the mountain, where the city stood; many are beautifully decorated, and represent some of the finest examples of Hellenistic architecture; 14 of them have a triple arch facade. (Hoade, 1984:681) Shaykh Abreik (Ibreik) was in the 19th century a small village that was built on the hill hiding the ancient town and cemetery. When Guérin visited the place he saw the remnants of the buildings of the ancient town scattered throughout the village as well as a few burial caves.

Gamaliel. (the town was destroyed sometime in the 6th century) The ancient Beth She#arāyim was built on a hill known by the Arabic name of Shaykh Burayk or better, in its local pronunciation, as I personally know it having grown up in this area, Sheikh (I)breik (or Abreik). The identification xxxviii ADDENDA AND CORRIGENDA of Sheikh Ibreik with Beth She#arāyim was established when the excavations in the place began in 1936 by Benjamin Mazar, who discovered a Greek epigramme with the Greek name of the place.

When Guérin visited the place on August 3, 1875, he found a very prosperous village of about 800 inhabitants, mostly Muslims. The village had two mosques, and, on a hill near it, a local shrine (walº) dedicated to Shaykh #Abdallah. He thought (wrongly) that the place could be identified with Adami-ha-Neqeb of the Book of Joshua (19:33) identified with Khirbat Tall adDāmiyyah Is. Gr. 193 239. (Aharoni, 1989:329) Guérin perceived that many ancient remains were scattered around the village or used in modern buildings.
