The death toll remains unknown, with estimates ranging from a few hundreds to a few thousands. This and heavy Arab pressure led to a cease-fire on June 17. In the medieval era it has long been believed to have served as part of both the sea and military defense for the harbour. However as Hartlepool went into decline, and the town's fate was compared with that of Ancient Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon), Middleton gradually lost its significance; by the late 18th century half of neighbouring Victoria and Commissioners Harbour was recorded as being half-filled in and used as a cornfield. Pacorus invaded Syria again in 40 BC in alliance with the Roman rebel Quintus Labienus. The Roman garrisons defected to Labienus and the combined armies defeated the forces of the Roman governor Decidius Saxa, who lost most of his troops and several aquilae (Aquila (Roman)) as he retreated to Antioch. With the Imperial forces routed, Pacorus and Labienus occupied the whole of Palestine and Anatolia, with the exception of a few cities that held out, including Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon). In Judea, Pacorus deputy Barzapharnes deposed king Hyrcanus II and appointed his nephew Antigonus king in his place.

It may have even survived the Arabic conquest of North Africa: the geographer al-Bakrī (Abū 'Ubayd 'Abd Allāh al-Bakrī) describes a people speaking a language that was not Berber (Berber languages), Latin or Coptic (Coptic language) in the city of Sirte in northern Libya, a region where spoken Punic survived well past written use.

It was ruled by a governor from Egypt and sometimes formed a minor Ptolemaic kingdom during the power-struggles of the 2nd and 1st centuries. Strong commercial relationships with Athens and Alexandria, two of the most important commercial centres of antiquity, developed. Carthage Carthage was founded in 814 BC (810s BC) by Phoenician settlers from the city of Tyre (Tyre (Lebanon)), bringing with them the city-god (tutelary deity) Melqart. As recounted by Timaeus, FrGrH 566, fr. 60. Archaeological attestation for so early a date is still wanting, though recent discoveries in situ may point nearly as far back in time. Ancient Carthage was an informal hegemony of Phoenician city-states throughout North Africa and modern Spain from 575 BC until 146 BC. It was more or less under the control of the city-state of Carthage after the fall of Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon) to Babylonian forces. At the height of the city's influence, its empire included most of the western Mediterranean. The empire was in a constant state of struggle with the Roman Republic, which led to a series of conflicts known as the Punic Wars. After the third and final Punic War (Third Punic War), Carthage was destroyed then occupied by Roman forces. Nearly all of the territory held by Carthage fell into Roman hands.

jesus

It is stated in the Bible that Jesus visited the region of Tyre and Sidon (Sidon#The Biblical Sidon) and healed a Gentile ( ) and from this region many came forth to hear him preaching (Mark 3:8; Gospel of Luke 6:17, Matthew 11:21–23). A congregation was founded here soon after the death of Saint Stephen, and Paul of Tarsus, on his return from his third missionary journey, spent a week in conversation with the disciples

latpun LPINTRO.htm However it is likely that Arabization of the Punics was facilitated by their language belonging to the same group (the Semitic languages group) as that of the conquerors, and thus having many grammatical and lexical similarities. thumb 250px The beach of the Sea of Galilee (File:Beach of Sea of Galilee in summer 2011.JPG) The synoptic Gospels agree that Jesus grew up in Nazareth, went to the River Jordan to meet and be baptised by the prophet John

(Yohannan) the Baptist, and shortly after began healing and preaching to villagers and fishermen around Luke's "Sea of Galilee" (which is actually a freshwater lake). Although there were many Phoenician, Hellenistic (Hellenistic civilization), and Roman (Ancient Rome) cities nearby (such as Gesara and Gadara; Sidon and Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon); Sepphoris and Tiberias), the Gentile mission was, at most, peripheral to Jesus' ministry.

ancient cultural

As Herodotus himself reveals, Halicarnassus, though a Dorian city, had ended its close relations with its Dorian neighbours after an unseemly quarrel (I, 144), and it had helped pioneer Greek trade with Egypt (II,178). It was therefore an outward-looking, international-minded port within the Persian Empire and the historian's family could well have had contacts in countries under Persian rule, facilitating his travels and his researches. His eye-witness accounts indicate that he travelled in Egypt probably sometime after 454 BC or possibly earlier in association with Athenians

The name of the city means "rock (rock (geology))" (Bikai, P., "The Land of Tyre", in Joukowsky, M., ''The Heritage of Tyre'', 1992, chapter 2, p. 13) after the rocky formation on which the town was originally built. The adjective for Tyre is ''Tyrian'', and the inhabitants are ''Tyrians''.
