Decapolis - A settlement in Syria also known as Abila
Decapolis - also known as Abila - was an ancient city in what is now Jordan. Excavations indicate that the site was inhabited more than 5,000 years ago in the early Bronze Age, and appears to have been continually used by man since then.

The site was in use from the Neolithic period until the Abbasid/Fatimid and Ayyubid/Mamluk periods, though its use in these later periods was limited. It possibly appears in one of the 14th century BC Amarna letters as Ia-bi-li-ma. While several of its ancient structures have been excavated including aqueducts, tombs, gates and public buildings, Abila is especially fascinating because so much of its remains unexcavated, yet visible of the surface of the ground.
