Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I. Chronicles, viii:12.).--'And Lod, with the towns thereof.' Lydda occupies the site of the Old Testament Lod, which is referred to in Ezra, ii:33, and Nehemiah, xi:35. It was an ancient Benjamite city which was rebuilt after the captivity, and through all the ages has preserved its ancient name. Lydda is but a slightly modified form of Lod. The Gospel was preached at Lydda very early, and here the Apostle Paul restored the sick Aeneas. In the time of the Emperor Vespasian this was a center of Jewish learning. The great caravan road runs from Lydda to Jimzu, the ancient Gimzo (II. Chronicles, xxviii: 18), which the Philistines once took, and which also has preserved its name to the present day. One of the first episcopates in Palestine was that of Lydda, and the signatures of its bishops are said to be found as late as the year 518." See 5162BAI/LVi80CAJS (Voyager # 358301)
