BEIRUT, LEBANON: SIN EL FIL

Sin el Fil is a suburb of Beirut.

The name literally translates “tooth” (sin) of “the elephant” (el fil). Being geographically closer to the ancient city of Antioch and far remote from natural elephant habitat, it is believed that the town name may have been a derogation of Saint Theophilus of Antioch. (wiki)
