Pleiades

Emar is located on the bank of the Euphrates. The site is attested in cuneiform records of nearby sites from the Early and Middle Bronze Ages, and yielded cuneiform texts itself in the Late Bronze Age. The site was abandoned at the end of the Bronze Age, c. 1180 BCE. Parts of the site were used for burials in the Byzantine and Islamic periods, as part of the settlement at Barbalissus.
