Tyre, whose destruction by Nebuchadnezzar is here foretold,
was a city of Phoenicia, on the shore of the Mediterranean,
twenty-four miles south of Sidon, and thirty-two north of
Accho or Ptolemais, according to the Antonine and Jerusalem
Itineraries, about lat. 33; degrees 18' N. long. 35; degrees 10'
E. There were two cities of this name; one on the continent
called Pal(9120)Tyrus, or Old Tyre, according to Strabo, thirty
stadia south of the other, which was situated on an island,
not above 700; paces from the main land, says Pliny. Old Tyre
was taken by Nebuchadnezzar, after a siege of thirteen years,
B.C. 573, which he so utterly destroyed, that it never
afterwards rose higher than a village. But previous to this,
the inhabitants had removed their effects to the island which
afterwards became so famous by the name of Tyre, though now
consisting only of about 800; dwellings.
