Siloam, tower of

Luke 13:4. Probably connected with "the wall of the pool of Siloah by the king's garden" (Nehemiah 3:15); "at the wall's bend to the S. above the fountain of Siloam" (Josephus B. J. 5:4, section 2) was probably a tower. Jotham "built much on the wall of Ophel" (2 Chronicles 27:3); "Manasseh compassed about Ophel" (2 Chronicles 33:14); a "tower lay (projecting) out" in Ophel (Nehemiah 3:26); such a projection might easily fall.
