Lybon or Libo

Lybon Or Libo a city mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary as being situated thirty-two Roman miles from Heliopolis (Baalbek), and the same distance from Laodicea. Its name has elsewhere been displaced in the same itinerary by that of Conna. The modern village of Lebweh is doubtless the same (Bibl. Sacr. 1848, page 699), although the distances have become corrupted (Porter, Damascus, 2:322 sq.). It is a poor village, in the middle of a basin, on a low tell among the streams on the eastern slope of Lebanon, with some remains of antiquity, and a considerable Arabian history (Robinson, Later Res. page 532 sq.).
