Although Sidon was certainly one of the most important coastal towns of ancient Phoenicia, and is referred to in Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian and Greek sources, we have little information about the topography of the city in ancient times... our ignorance about ancient Sidon stems from the fact that there has been relatively little excavation.
