In Eastern Armenian, the variation used in Armenia the city's name is Բեյրութ ''Beyrut''. ) is the capital and largest city of Lebanon. As there has been no recent population census, the exact population is unknown; but, in 2007, estimates ranged from slightly more than 1 million to slightly less than 2 million as part of Greater Beirut. Located on a peninsula at the midpoint of Lebanon's Mediterranean coast, Beirut is the country's largest and main seaport. The first mention of this metropolis is found in the ancient Egyptian Tell el Amarna (Amarna) letters (Amarna letters) dating from the 15th century BC (Before Christ). The city has been inhabited continuously since then. The Beirut River runs south to north on the eastern edge of the city.
