Caesarea Philippi is the name of a Roman city built at the southwestern base of Mt. Hermon, next to oned of the springs which forms the Jordan River  .

Known also as “Paneion” in Hellenistic times (hence its modern Arabic name “Banias”), Caesarea Philippi is the site of the confession of Peter, and his naming (Mat. 16:13-20; Mark 8:27-30; Luk 9:18-20). 

Excavated since 1988, Caesarea Philippi bears a wealth of remains of a Pagan cult, a Roman period Palace complex, as well as remains from Byzantine and Crusaders times.
