Only a few points need be noticed.
A feature of some parts of Solomon's buildings, as described by Josephus, corresponds remarkably to the method adopted at Nineveh of incrusting or veneering a wall of brick or stone with slabs of a more costly material, as marble or alabaster.
Another use of walls in Palestine is to support mountain roads | terraces formed on the sides of hills for purposes of cultivation.
The "path of the vineyards," (Numbers 22:24) is a pathway through vineyards, with walls on each side.
