Need help deciphering Birth Place Other (Gabel) and a variation of spelling of a last name.

On my grandmother's (Sadie Mansour - spelled Sidie) on ship manifest from Jan 23, 1914 - it states she left out of the port of Naples. Her birthplace "Other" states Barto.

The 2 cousins that accompanied her and her sister to had at the US has a Birth Place "Other" as Gabel. Can anyone decipher what these two towns might be. I think Barto is Syria or Lebanon. Not sure about GABEL. Could this be Gabellino a province of Grosseto, Italy or a town in Lebanon or Syria?
