  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Helbon 
  fat;  i.e.,  "fertile",  (Ezek.  27:  18  only),  a  place  whence  wine 
  was  brought  to  the  great  market  of  Tyre.  It  has  been  usually 
  identified  with  the  modern  Aleppo,  called  Haleb  by  the  native 
  Arabs,  but  is  more  probably  to  be  found  in  one  of  the  villages 
  in  the  Wady  Helbon,  which  is  celebrated  for  its  grapes,  on  the 
  east  slope  of  Anti-Lebanon,  north  of  the  river  Barada  (Abana).
