__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(II. Samuel, v:9.)--'So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the City of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward.' The Tower of David stands in that part of Jerusalem which he first captured, and where he lived. The present building we see is called the Hippicus of Herod, which was spared by Titus, as Josephus asserts, in order to remain as a perpetual testimony of the difficulties which the Roman conquerers overcame. It was erected by Herod and named in honor of his friend Hippicus. The present entrance is on the west side. The royal castle and palace of Herod was connected with this and other towers. The whole was very strongly fortified and fitted up with great splendor. Josephus speaks of its magnificent halls, gardens, and sculptures. Nothing is left but the base of the tower we see." See 5220BAI/LVi138CAJS (Voyager # 359452).
