Resume of the Orontes!
THE Orontes (El-Assi) was anciently the chief river of Syria, also called Draco, Typhon and Axius. The last was a native form, from whose revival, or continuous employment in native speech, has preceded the modern name Assi ("rebel"), which is variously interpreted by Arabs as referring to the streams impetuosity, to its unproductive channel, or to the fact that it flows away from Mecca!.
The Orontes rises in the great springs of Ain El Zarka and Deffesh on the side of the Bekaa Valley, very near the fountains of the southward-flowing Litani, and it runs due north, parallel with the coast, and falling 2000 feet through a rocky gorge!Then it flows northwards across western Syria through the cities of Homs and Hama, reaching the Mediterranean Sea near Antakya in southern Turkey! .
