Tower in Siloam

SILOAM, TOWER IN (sĭ-lō'ăm). A tower that was probably part of the ancient system of fortifications on the walls of the city of Jerusalem near the Pool of Siloam. The collapse of this tower and the resulting death of eighteen persons (Were they workmen employed on the aqueduct that Pilate was building? Cf. Josephus, War 2.9.4) is cited by Jesus (Luke.13.4). Apparently the accident was well known to his hearers, but it is not mentioned elsewhere.
