Heliopolis is the latinisation of the Greek Hēlioúpolis ( Ἡλιούπολις ), meaning "Sun City"  in reference to the solar cult there. It is the earlier attested of the two names, appearing under the Seleucids and Ptolemies .  Ammianus Marcellinus , however, does note that earlier " Assyrian " names of Levantine towns continued to be used alongside the official Greek ones imposed by the successors of Alexander .  In Greek religion , Helios was both the sun in the sky and its personification as a god . The local Semitic god Baʿal Haddu was more often equated with Zeus or Jupiter or simply called the "Great God of Heliopolis",  [a] but the name may refer to the Egyptians' association of Baʿal with their great god Ra .  [b] It was sometimes described as Heliopolis in Syria or Coelesyria ( Latin : Heliopolis Syriaca or Syriae ) to distinguish it from its namesake in Egypt . In Catholicism , its titular see is distinguished as Heliopolis in Phoenicia , from its former Roman province Phoenice . The importance of the solar cult is also attested in the name Biḳāʿ al-ʿAzīz borne by the plateau surrounding Baalbek, as it references an earlier solar deity and not later men, named Aziz . In Greek and Roman antiquity , it was known as Heliopolis . It still possesses some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in Lebanon, including one of the largest temples of the empire. The gods that were worshipped there ( Jupiter , Venus , and Bacchus ) were equivalents of the Canaanite deities Hadad , Atargatis . Local influences are seen in the planning and layout of the temples, as they vary from the classic Roman design.
