Hali (2)

Hali For this locality Lieut. Conder accepts (Tent Work, 2:377) the suggestion of the modern 'Alia, which is laid down on the Ordnance Map at nine and three quarter miles south-east of Es-Zib (Ecdippa on the coast), and described in the accompanying Memoirs (1:170) as "a small square building of well-dressed stone, without draft, probably of the crusades; a large number of cisterns and traces of ruins." Among the latter are added, from Guerin, a description of several sepulchral chambers containing sarcophagi. The village of Malia, which lies half a mile north-west, is thought to represent the Meltoth of Josephus (Wars, 3:3, 7), and the Mahalia or Chateau du Roi of the Teutonic knights (ibid. page 149, 155).
