Poseideion (modern Ba'îª) is located on the North Syrian coast just north of the mouth of the Orontes from which it is separated by the mountains of Mons Casius. It was on the border between Syria and Cilicia but this meant that the actual boundary was somewhere north of the town itself (Leuze 1935:261). Note also that Herodotus says Poseideion was situated on the border of Cilicia and Syria, not Phoenicia. Elsewhere, Herodotus says:

o˚moure÷ei ga\r h Suri/h Ai˙gu/ptwØ, oi˚ de« Foi÷nikeç, tw◊vn e˙sti h Sidw¿n, e˙n thø◊ Suri÷hø oi˙ke÷ousi.

R. Joshua says: He who learns and does not labor
[to accomplish it] is like a man who sows
but does not harvest.* He who studies Torah and
forgets [it, to what may] he be compared? To a
woman who gives birth and buries [her infant].
