TextDicuntur etiam Syriae, tres Palestinae: unde quinta Syria est Palestina, quae proprie Philistim nominatur: cuius metropolis est Caesarea, incipiens a Castro Pereginorum et tendens versus meridiem supra mare Mediterraneum contra austrum usque Gazam. Sexta Syria est alia Palestina, cuius metropolis est Ierusalem, cum omnibus montanis usque ad Mare Mortuum et usque desertum Cadesbarne; haec stricte Iudaea dicitur nomine totius parti attributo. Septima Syria est alia Palestina: cuius metropolis est Bethsan, sita sub monte Gelboe iuxta Iordanem; quae Galilea et campus magnus Esdrelon.

TranslationAlso, the three parts of Palestine are called the Syrias, of which the fifth Syria is that Palestine which is properly called Philistim. Its chief city is Caesarea, and it begins at Pilgrims’ Castle and extends south along the coast of the Mediterranean as far as Gaza. The Sixth Syria is the second Palestine. Its chief city is Jerusalem, and it includes all the hill country as far as the Dead Sea and the wilderness of Kadesh Barnea. Strictly this country is called Judaea, the name of a part being given to the whole. The Seventh Syria is the third Palestine. Its chief city is Beth Shan, located below Mount Gilboa near the Jordan. It contains Galilee and the great plain of Esdrelon.
