Banias ( Caesarea Philippi )

bron

In the New Testament Banias is called Philipi Caesarea, but actually before that it was called Caesarea Panias: Banyas or Banias

Named after the god Pan.

Limestone rocks bring forth a river called Nahal Shenir, one of the sources of the Jordan

I was a regular visitor in 1973 / 1974 because it was near Sdeh Nehemiah, where I lived.
