("habitation".) An ancient, royal, Canaanite city, on the Mediterranean, S. of Carmel; assigned to Manasseh, though within Asher (Joshua 11:2; Joshua 12:23; Joshua 17:11); Joshua 17:9 miles N. of Caesarea toward Ptolemais; now Tantura. The coast line runs parallel to a spur of Carmel at a mile and a half distance; the intervening "region" is the "border" or "coast" of Dor. The original inhabitants were not expelled, but David made them tributary, and Solomon stationed one of his commissariat officers there (1 Kings 4:11; Judges 1:27-28).
