(See HOUSE.) Foundations were often carried down to the solid rock, as in the case of the temple. The foundation stones are often of enormous size, 20 to 30 ft. long, by three to 6 ft. 6 inches wide, and five to 7 ft. 6 inches thick; three at Baalbek are each 68 ft. long, and one in the quarry 68 ft. 4 in. long, 17 ft. 2 in. broad, and 14 ft. 7 in. thick. Slabs of marble or alabaster line the walls of Solomon's buildings, as those of Nineveh.
