Episode B54 - Efqa
Synopsis: Monotheism, modern Syria, the world’s first romance story, and the end of the Bloodline.
“The oasis and town of Palmyra owe their existence to the plentiful spring that runs from Jebel Muntar. This spring dominates a narrow passage in the principal route between the Homs pass and the Euphrates River and is in the heart of the Syrian desert. The oasis furnishes a resting place between Iraq and Central Syria, and it was a primary stop for caravans plying between the Gulf, Iran, and the Mediterranean.” – Khaled Al-Asaad and Adnan Bounni, Palmyra: History, Monuments & Museumhttp://s407341505.onlinehome.us/Episode_B54_Efqa.mp3
