(ancient Sidon) Port in Lebanon; It stands at the end of the Trans-Arabian oil pipeline from Saudi Arabia. Sidon was the chief city of Phoenicia, a bitter rival of Tyre about 1400–701 BC, when it was conquered by Sennacherib. Later a Roman city, it was taken by the Arabs AD 637 and fought over during the Crusades.
