Deux bornes milliaires contenant des inscriptions ont ete trouvees en 1968 aux environs du village de Fiq dans le Golan. L'etude des routes dans le Golan faite 20 ans apres cette decouverte nous autorise a penser que pendant la periode romaine et byzantine il n'existait pas de route principale allant de Zemah a Khisfin et qu'une nouvelle route a ete construite durant le regne d'Abd al-Malik. Il est possible que cette nouvelle route ommayade ait ete reliee a la route romaine traversant le Golan.
