* Caesarea Philippi.
C(9173)area Philippi was anciently called Paneas, from the
mountain of Panium, or Hermon, at the foot of which it was
situated, near the springs of Jordan; but Philip the tetrarch,
the son of Herod the Great, having rebuilt it, gave it the
name of C(9173)area in honour of Tiberius, the reigning emperor,
and he added his own name to it, to distinguish it from
another C(9173)area on the coast of the Mediterranean. It was
afterwards named Neronias by the young Agrippa, in honour of
Nero; and in the time of William of Tyre, it was called
Belinas. It was, according to Josephus, a day's journey from
Sidon, and 120; stadia from the lake of Phiala; and, according
to Abulfeda, a journey of a day and a half from Damascus.
Many have confounded it with Dan, or Leshem; but Eusebius and
Jerome expressly affirm that Dan was four miles from Paneas,
on the road to Tyre. It is now called Banias, and is
described, by Seetzen, as a hamlet of about twenty miserable
huts, inhabited by Mohammedans; but Burckhardt says it
contains about 150; houses, inhabited by Turks, Greeks, etc.
