Halhul The modern representative of this place, Halhul, is described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:305) as "a large stone village on a hill-top, with two springs and a well; also a fine spring below ('Hin ed-Dhirweh). On the west is the mosque of Neby Yunis, now in a partly ruinous condition, with a minaret. There are rock-cut tombs south of the village. The hills on the north have vineyards on them, and there are other tombs here also." These last are elsewhere more fully detailed (3:329).
