Aphik, Afik אפיק is a city of Asher from which the Canaanites were not driven out , identified with the Aphaca of classical times, the modern Afka, or alternatively with Tel Afek near Haifa. "And Asher did not dispossess the ones living in Accho, and the ones living in Sidon, and Ahlab, and Achzib, and Helbah, and Aphik, and Rehob". (Judges 1:31)
It was the scene of the licentious worship of the Syrian Aphrodite. The ruins of the temple, "magnificent ruins" in a "spot of strange wildness and beauty", are still seen at Afka, on the north-west slopes of Mount Lebanon, near the source of the river Adonis (now Nahr Ibrahim), 12 miles east of Gebal.
