* Babel. that is, Confusion.
The tower of Babel, Herodotus informs us, was a furlong or 660
feet, in length and breadth; and, according to Strabo, it rose
to the same altitude. It was of a pyramidical form,
consisting of eight square towers, gradually decreasing in
breadth, with a winding ascent on the outside, so very broad
as to allow horses and carriages to pass each other, and even
to turn. This magnificent structure is so completely
destroyed that its very site is doubtful; and when supposed to
be discovered, in all cases exhibiting a heap of rubbish.
