Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, xlvii:16.)--'Hamath, Berothath, Sibraim.'
Some connect the Berothath mentioned in Ezekiel xlvii:16, with Beyrout. The best authorities, however, think this connection
very remote. This city became a Roman colony in the reign of Augustus. It was adorned and beautified with theatres, colonnades,
porticoes and baths by Agrippa, the remains of which are still scattered over the city. There are said to be a great number
of large columns of both gray and red granite which have been built into the quay here. Here it was that Titus celebrated
his victory over Jerusalem, and also the birthday of his father by gladiatorial combats, in which the captives of Zion were
forced to fight with wild beasts and with one another, according to Josephus."
Several boats on a shore ; several buildings are at the water's edge--one is on stilts and is made of wood
