Siloam Tower of

Mentioned only Luke 13:4. The place here spoken of is the "village now called Silwan, or Kefr Silwan, on the east of the" "valley of Kidron, and to the north-east of the pool. It stands" on the west slope of the Mount of Olives. "As illustrative of the movement of small bands of Canaanites "from place to place, and the intermingling of Canaanites and" "Israelites even in small towns in earlier times, M.C. Ganneau" "records the following curious fact: "Among the inhabitants of" the village (of Siloam) there are a hundred or so domiciled for "the most part in the lower quarter, and forming a group apart" "from the rest, called Dhiabrye, i.e., men of Dhiban. It appears" that at some remote period a colony from the capital of king Mesha (Dibon-Moab) crossed the Jordan and fixed itself at the gates of Jerusalem at Silwan. The memory of this migration is still preserved; and I am assured by the people themselves that many of their number are installed in other villages round "Jerusalem" (quoted by Henderson, Palestine)."
