Qinnasrin (Arabic: قنسرين; Syriac: ܩܢܫܪܝܢ, romanized: Qinnašrīn, lit. 'Nest of Eagles'), also known by numerous other romanizations[n 1] and originally known as Chalcis-on-Belus (Latin: Chalcis ad Belum; Greek: Χαλκὶς, Khalkìs), was a historical town in northern Syria. The town was situated 25 km (16 mi) south west of Aleppo on the west bank of the Queiq River (historically, the Belus) and was connected to Aleppo with a major road during Roman times.
