82. The (place) of Saint Micah

We can see only four white letters on a red background above a church, wich could take part of the vignette 83.

So I shall pass on towards Egypt and pause for a moment at Soccoth and near the Spring of Samson which he made to come forth with the molar tooth of the jawbone, and I will hold my dry mouth to it so that I may be refreshed to see Morasthi, once the tomb of Michah the prophet, now a church. (Hieronymus, Ep. 108 - Peregr. Paulae, 14)
