Chapter Summary

Byblos has long been known by the stele of King Yehawmilk (CI S. I, 1) under the Achaemenids the temple of Baalat-Gebal was rebuilt. Excavations have unearthed little expressive remains. The work is monumental and seen in a Phoenician tradition. As in Byblos, as in the temple of Echmoun Sidon, was a monumental podium showcase the sanctuary. It is conceivable that the facade is high on the eastern flank of Tyropoeon or in the upper part of the slopes west of the Kidron Valley which appear tall foundations of the wall built by Herod. In Jerusalem, the wall that the author presents today would be part of the foundations built under the direction of Sheshbassar immediately after returning from the Babylonian captivity, to exalt the glory of Yahweh in his temple. The original context of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Achaemenid Empire; Babylonian captivity; King Yehawmilk; Sidonians; Yahweh
