  • بقرب حارم بين اوفيمية وحمص. دير مشهور جليل تطوّع ببنائه لوجه الله الكريم، الوجيه بطرس بن يوسف الحمصي السرياني نحو سنة 480 وحبس عليه اوقافاً جليلة تدرّ على اهله ارزاقهم، فبلغ رهبانه في العقد الثالث من القرن التالي ستة آلاف و ثلثمائة، وكان عامرا حتى سنة 830 و تخرج فيه ثلاثة اساقفة2
  • near Ḥārim, between Euphemia and Ḥomṣ, is a famous and great monastery which was built in 480 through the private donation of the eminent Syrian Peter bin Joseph of Ḥomṣ, who bequeathed a great deal of property for the sustenance of its monks. In the third decade of the fifth century, its monks numbered 6,300. It remained populated until 830 and produced three bishops.3

Corrigenda

In Dolabani's translation of Barsoum's description ܘܐܶܬܢܰܦܰܩܘ should read ܘܶܐܬܢܰܦܰܩܘ.
In Moosa's English translation of Barsoum's description "fifth" should read "following."

Disambiguation

Not the same place as Mor Bosus.

Errata

Barsoum's description erroneously merges the information for this location with that of the other Mor Bosus, which is located between Apamea and Ḥomṣ.
