Theodoret (in Jer ch. 46,) expressly affirms that Riblah or
Reblatha was in his time called Emesa. [Kome de estin he
Reblatha tes nun kaloumenes Emeses.] Emesa was a city of
Syria, situated on the Orontes, and, according to the Antonine
Itinerary, 18; miles from Laodicea ad Libanum. It is now
called Homs, or Hems, about eight hours, or twenty-four miles
S.E. of Hamah or Hamath, in the road to Damascus. The present
town only occupies about one quarter of the space contained
within the ancient walls, which apparently date from the time
of the Saracens. Here is nothing remarkable, except a Roman
sepulchre, and a large castle in ruins.
