People's Dictionary of the Bible - Helbon
Helbon (hĕl'bŏn), fertile. A Syrian city celebrated for its wine, Ezekiel 27:18, and formerly identified with Aleppo, but later with Halbûn, in a wild glen high up in the Anti-Lebanon. This valley is celebrated for its fine grapes and vineyards. Robinson says "the wine of Halbûn" is the best and most famous wine in the country.

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Helbon
Formerly supposed to be Haleb, or as called in Europe, Aleppo, a city of Syria, about one hundred and eighty miles north of Damascus, and about eighty miles north from the Mediterranean Sea. In 1822, Aleppo was visited by a dreadful earthquake, by which it was almost entirely destroyed. Its present population is not half of the 200,000 it then possessed. But recently a valley has been found on the eastern slope of Anti-Lebanon, north of the Barada, called Helbon, from on of its principal villages. Its grapes and the wine made from them are still remarkable for their fine quality. This valley is probably the Helbon of Ezekiel 27:18 .
