Hi Lee,

I’m unclear which part of Baalbek you’re claiming a case for? Certainly it’s not the temple of Jupiter or the temple of Bachus. The foundations seem to be the claim - is that right? Perhaps because of ignorance, I thought it was generally accepted as a site that had been built upon successively, is that not the case?

Regarding your note around the possible linkage to biblical stories of Solomon, wiki has the following note. Given the language attempted, I assume these proposals have suffered some setback. If you haven’t already, it may be worthwhile investigating those references and why those proposals were not accepted.

Wikipedia on Baalbek
On the basis of its similar name, several 19th-century Biblical archaeologists attempted to connect Baalbek to the "Baalgad" mentioned in the Hebrew Scripture's Book of Joshua,[28] the Baalath listed among Solomon's cities in the First Book of Kings,[29][30] the Baal-hamon where he had a vineyard,[31][4] and the "Plain of Aven" in Amos.[32][33]

I read with interest the linkage you make to the Epic of Gilgamesh. I wondered whether any reading of the epic had been done with respect to the Babylonian Mul.Apin tables and found the following:
