Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, ii:12.)-'And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger.' The temple of Pan, or what remains of it at Cæsarea Philippi, is hewn out of a part of Mount Hermon. There are arched niches chiseled into the sides of the foot of the mountain here about which there are Greek letters indicating that the temple was dedicated to the rustic god Pan. Cæsarea Philippi was but a little distance from Dan, which formed the extreme limit of the Holy Land, and so the god worshiped here was one of the gods of the people that were round about Israel. Here are streams, wild woods, goats, and mountains, and all things in nature which seem to be friendly to the genius of the heathen god, Pan."
