Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 406)

Approximate modern location: On an island next to the city of Beirut, Lebanon.

Elm-Number [See below]: None.*

Other Comments: That we had a house in Beirut is asserted by one source, but is not mentioned in any other sources.  It is possible that it was a dependency of Akkon, late in the Crusader period.  It is asserted by this source that this was the location where Julian, last Crusader Lord of Sidon, died.
