* mount Hor.
Mount Hor was situated in Arabia Petr(9161), on the confines of
Edom. It is described by Burckhardt, as being situated on the
western side of a valley called Wady Mousa; in which are found
the ruins of the ancient Petra, and which is two long days'
journey north-east of Accaba (on the northern point of the
Elanitic gulf of the Red sea,) in the Djebel Shera, or mount
Seir, and on the east side of the Araba, the valley which
forms the continuation of that of the Jordan. On the summit
of the mountain is the tomb of Haroun, or Aaron, which is held
in great veneration by the Arabs; which agrees with the
testimonies of Josephus, Eusebius, and Jerome, all persons
well acquainted with these countries, who agree in proving
that the sepulchre of Aaron, in mount Hor, was near Petra.
When visited by Mr. Legh, it was attended by a crippled Arab
hermit, about 80; years of age, who conducted them into a small
white building, crowned by a cupola, that contains the tomb of
Aaron. The monument is of stone, about three feet high; and
round the chamber where it stood were suspended beads, etc.,
the votive offerings of the devotees.
