Aphek was an important Biblical site next to a set of springs (“Rosh Ha’ayin”) and the international highway (“Via Maris”). In Roman times it was refounded and renmaed by King Herod as “Antipatris”. Paul was held in that city for one night (Acts 23:32-33). In Ottoman times Antipatris was fortified, yet failed to hold against the British in the battles of 1917.
