* The broad walls of Babylon. or, The walls of broad Babylon.
According to the testimony of Herodotus, the circumference of
the walls of Babylon was 480; stadia, or 60; miles, their
breadth 50; cubits, and their height 200; cubits; but when
Darius became master of the place, B.C. 516, he took away all
their 100; gates of brass, and beat down their walls to 50
cubits; and now not a vestige of these immense fortifications
remains, to mark the site of this once mighty city!
* broken. or, made naked. high gates.
