Abstract~The ruins of Hippos are located not far from the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the south region of the Golan Heights plateau (the western slope), east of Kibbutz Ein-Gev. Situated at the same latitude as the Roman city of Tiberias (Bernice), which is located on the other side of the lake, some 10 kilometers to the west. Established during Hellenistic times, from which there are just a few traces. The settlement, for the most part, was settled by non Jews. Hippos existed through Roman, Byzantine and Early Muslim period, each contributing to the site's architecture and archaeological findings.
