A country in Arabia Petr(9161), on the eastern coast of the Red
Sea, near Mount Sinai. This place is still called by the
Arabs the Land of Midian, or of Jethro. Abulfeda, speaking
of Midian, says, "Madyan is a city, in ruins, on the shore of
the Red Sea, on the opposite side to Tabuc, from which it is
distant about six days' journey. At Midian may be seen the
famous well at which Moses watered the flocks of Sho(8369)b,
(Jethro.) This city was the capital of the tribe of Midian
in the days of the Israelites."
