55 km to the northwest of Hama, Syria, overlooking the Ghab valley. It was fortified and enlarged by Seleucus I Nicator in 300 BC, who so named it after his Bactrian wife, Apame.
The acropolis hill is now occupied by the ruins called Kalat el-Mudik (Kŭlat el-Mudîk). The ruins of a highly ornamental character, and of an enormous extent, are still standing, the remains, probably, of the temples of which Sozomen speaks (vii. 15); part of the town is enclosed in an ancient castle situated on a hill; the remainder is to be found in the plain.

Autumn already and finally came to Aleppo. Yellow cover on all plants, gives them a special hue, even not found in microsoft colors’ spectrum.
Heavy rains followed the sudden cooling of weather, and Aleppo swam in waters.
Don’t blame the sky, this can happen in any country! Look to Europe’s Danub basin what happens every year! 🙂
