Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I. Kings, xxi:18.)--'Arise, go down to meet Ahab, king of Israel, which is in Samaria.' The city of Samaria was built by Omri, king of Israel, and became the capital of the ten tribes until the captivity. Ahab built a temple to Baal here, which was destroyed by Jehu. 'He reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a grove : and Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.'--I. Kings, xvi: 32-33. We give above a picture of the well in Samaria. The prophecy uttered with reference to this place in Micah, i:6, is literally fulfilled: 'I will make Samaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.' This has literally come to pass." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph. See 5438BAI/LVii164CAJS (Voyager # 362528)
