Some Interesting Syrian and Palestinian Inscriptions

Excerpt from Some Interesting Syrian and Palestinian Inscriptions One of the charms of Eastern travel consists in the constant appeal which is made to the historical conscience and archaeological instinct of the pilgrim. However carefully the countries visited may have been surveyed, their principal sites identified and their monuments copied and commented on, there is always something new to be seen amongst the remains of so long a sequence of centuries, and where so many and various populations have passed and repassed over the historical field of view. There are new inscriptions to be read, and old ones to be re-read with newer light and with greater accuracy: nor is the pleasure of the pursuit diminished by the fact that here, as elsewhere, one has to be a "trusty money-changer" who knows how to tell good coins from bad, the fabricated antiques of the modern trader and stonemason from the genuine legacies of ancient days. During my Syrian rambles in the year 1888 - 1889 I made a point copying such monuments as I could get access to, both those which were already in the hands of collectors, and those which were still lying amongst ancient ruins or built into modern walls.
