Caesarea Philippi (Banias)

Caesarea Philippi is the name of a Roman city built at the southwestern base of Mt. Hermon  , next to one 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; Luke 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.
