Diana
Artemis, prompt, complete light
Strong's #G735

Diana was the Roman name for the pagan Greek goddess Artemis. The seat of her worship was a huge temple in Ephesus, the capital of the Roman province of Asia.

Ephesus' temple to Diana, funded entirely by the residents of the city, is considered one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. In its greatest manifestation, it measured 450 feet long (137 meters) by 225 feet wide (69 meters) and 60 feet (18 meters) high. The upper part of this architectural wonder was held up by more than 127 columns.

Those who worshipped Diana, and profited from her temple, came in direct conflict with Christianity when the Apostle Paul preached the gospel in the city (Acts 19).

Dibon (Dibongad)
Wasting, pining
Strong's #H1769

Dibongad is possibly another name for Dibon. It was a major Moabite city that was controlled, at the time of Moses, by the Amorites (Numbers 21:25 - 26). It was located on the major north-south trading route, east of the Jordan River, called the King's Highway.

Dibon is one of the places where Israel camped while they roamed the wilderness forty years after leaving Egypt. It was ultimately conquered by God's people, under Moses' leadership, and given to the tribe of Gad.

Another city named Dibon, within Judah's territory, was populated during the time of the prophet Nehemiah (Nehemiah 11:25).
