This inscription was photographed in the vicinity of the Temple of Baalshamin.
Qalat Ibn Maan is the medieval castle that sits on the hill to the west of the ancient city of Palmyra. It is thought to date to the C13th and, although occupying an impressive defensive position its construction of rough fieldstone means that the walls would not have been able to withstand a heavy bombardment.
This tomb was cut out of the stone at the base of the hill to the west of the ancient city.
This is one of the best-preserved tomb towers still extant and preserves many elements of its original fresco and sculptural decoration.
These photographs are looking in the direction of the Temple of Bel from the base of the hill on which the castle stands.
