<<Hosn Suleiman is called also Khikhi temple (Arabic معبد خيخي) or Sisi house (Arabic بيت سيسي) and it is hinted from the naming that it bears semitic roots, and maybe dedicated to the god “betosisi”, which is considered the healing god of the Romans. Also known as Baal (Bel) temple, ascribed to god Baal.>>
