The Bordeaux It inerary (or, Itinerarium Burdigalense ) AD 333 - 334 From Caesarea to Jerusalem City of Caesarea Palaestinae (Kaisarieh), that is, Judaea – 8 miles. Total from Tyre to Caesarea Palaestina (Kaisarieh) 73 miles, 2 changes, 3 halts. Here is the bath (balneus) of Cornelius the centurion who gave many alms (Acts 10:2; 47-48). At the third milestone from thence is the mountain Syna, where there is a fountain, in which, if a woman bathes, she becomes pregnant. City of Maximianopolis – 18 miles. City of Stradela (Jezreel, Zerin) – 10 miles. Here is the Mount Gerizim.
