The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 95

The river Jordan in Mount Lebanon comes from the two wells which are named Jeor and Dan, and abundant is the fish of that river. On one side of it are Mount Gilboa and a very beautiful plain, and on the other side is Mount Lebanon, as far as the desert of Faran. And it is these hills that divide the kingdom of Suria and the Land of the Wine (Phoenicia), where grow apples of cedar larger than a man's head. This river goes between Galilee and Idumaea and Botron, and through the plain of Meridan (Meldan) wherein is the temple of Job, and into the Red Sea.
