Eusebius says this was a town in his time not far from
Neapolis, towards Scythopolis or Bethshan; between which towns
it is also placed by the old Jerusalem Itinerary.
Situated, probably, east of Shechem, though its precise
situation, as well as that of many others, cannot, at this
distance of time, be ascertained. Many of these towns were
small, and we may rationally conclude, slightly built; and
consequently have perished more than two thousand years ago.
It would therefore be useless now to look for such places;
though in many instances, their ancient names have been
preserved, and their sites identified. Several towns even in
England, mentioned by C(9173)ar and other ancient writers, are no
longer discernible; several have changed their names, and not
a few their situation.
