[some Shalle'cheth] (Heb. Shalle'keth, שִׁלֶּכֶת, overthrow; Sept. παστοφόριον), the name of a gate on the west of Solomon's temple, which fell to the lot of the porters Shuppim and Hosah (1Ch 26:16). As it led to Mount Zion by the "causeway" (later the bridge), it probably was that called Kipponos (Coponius) in the Talmud (Middoth, 1, 3). It is probably also identical with the gate Sur (2Ki 11:6) or that of the "Foundation" (2Ch 23:5). If, however, the causeway be the same as that by which the water is now conveyed to the Haram, the gate in question may have been at the present Bab Silsileh, much farther north. SEE TEMPLE.
