Chapter Summary

A village on the south-western slopes of the Carmel, some 7 km. to the north-east of Dor-?an?urah. There is very little information on the village. Gu?rin, and MvB in his files, call it Ikzim. The name which appears in the SWP and the British maps is Ijzim, and this is how it was called by its inhabitants. Gu?rin says that he saw a piece of an ancient column at the gate of the local mosque and traces of an ancient tower near the village well. The mosque is situated about half-way up to the top of the village. It consists of a court surrounded by buildings with the mosque itself in the south. Above its entrance was a stele sculpted in the form of a vase with flowers and fruits on which the shahādah was engraved.
