Tadmor, the Palmyra of the Greeks, as we learn from Josephus,
a celebrated city of Syria, situated in an oasis, or fertile
spot of land, surrounded on all sides by a vast sandy desert,
like an island in the midst of the ocean; according to Pliny,
337 miles from Seleucia and Tigrim, 203 from the nearest part
of the Mediterranean, and 176 from Damascus; according to
Josephus, one day's journey west of the Euphrates, and six
from Babylon; and according to Ptolemy, in lat. 34ø north, or
that of Tripoli, and about 4ø more easterly; and it is
described by Mr. Wood as "situated under a barren ridge of
hills to the west, and open on the other sides to the desert:"
"about six days' journey from Aleppo, and as much from
Damascus, and about twenty leagues west of the Euphrates."
Palmyra attained the height of its splendor when the royal
city of Zenobia was conquered by the emperor Aurelian; became
a Roman colony after the victories of Trajan; and was probably
reduced to its present miserable state in the wars of the
Saracens. Its magnificent ruins, however, scattered over an
extent of several miles, sufficiently attest its former
splendor and riches.

- Hiram. Ophir.
Conjectures respecting the situation of Ophir are endless.
Grotius conjectures it to be a part of Arabia called Aphar by
Arrian; while Bochart and others have placed it in the island
of Ceylon. Calmet supposes it to have been situated in
Armenia; but his late editor places it at the head of the
Indus. Josephus says that Ophir is the Indies, called the
Gold country; by which he is supposed to mean Chersonesus
Aurea, now Malacca, opposite Sumatra; and Le Poivre observes
that the inhabitants of these places call their gold mines
- took thence.
