Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
OCINA . Taking the towns mentioned in order as fearing the advance of Holofernes ( Jdt 2:28 ), Sidon and Tyre are well known. With some certainty Sur may be identified with Umm el-’AmÃ»d , S. of IskanderÃ»na , which seems to have been formerly called TurÃ¢n . The next step takes us naturally to Acre, in later times known as Accon , in which we may find an echo of the earlier Ocina.
