Greek name for the mountain range today known as Ǧabal Lubnān aš- Šarqiya (East Lebanon) which lies north-west of Damascus. Between these mountains and the main ridge of the Lebanon stretches the fertile plain of the Orontes and Litani, the Beqa, an important link between central Syria and Palestine and an area which was settled at a very early stage.
