This chapter examines the settlements in Aenos, Anthedon, Antioch by Hippos, Antioch in Huleh, Antiochenes in Jerusalem, Apollonia, Apollonia in Coele Syria, Arethousa, Arsinoe, Birta of the Ammanitis, Capitolias, Chalkis under Libanos, Demetrias Damascus, Dion, Dionysias, Gerasa Antioch on the Chrysorhoas, Helenoupolis, Heliopolis Baalbek, Hellas, Jerusalem (the Akra), Larisa, Lysias, Panias, Pella/Berenike, Philadelpheia Rabbat Amman, Philoteria, Samareia, Seleukeia abila, Seleukeia/Antioch Gadara, Seleukeia Gaza, Seleukeia in the Gaulan, Shechem, Skythopolis, Straton's Tower, Sykaminopolis, Boukolopolis, and Krokodeilopolis. Speculation about the site of Arethousa is often tied to the suggestion that it was previously known as Pegai and subsequently renamed Antipatris. Heliopolis was located at the site of the modern Baalbek. Lysias was located in the region east of the Dead Sea. The city name Panias was taken from a cave sacred to Pan. Straton's Tower encompassed the area to the north of the Crusader wall and the harbor area to the south.
