23. The (place) of Saint Lot - (Dayr 'Ayn Abbata)

The oratory represented on the map is situated on the slope of the mountain, but in reality, it is not so far from Zoar as may suggest us the map.

He was living with them (...) in the caves of the Arnon, or of Saint Lot, or of Saint Aaron, or beyond the Dead Sea. (Vita S. Stephani Sabaitae, 16:2)
