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.
