le Strange[edit]

Does anyone know: is this the place mentioned on p. 405 in le Strange? Cheers, Huldra (talk) 17:02, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Well, I think it is. Though, it's strange that the second paragraph quoting Abu'l Fida, says that the city is south-west of Aleppo (in reality it's north). The first paragraph, however, quoting Yaqut, places it correctly to the north. I think they're both talking about the same place, nevertheless, just a type or factual error (the town is still famous for its pistachio). Yazan (talk) 17:49, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
