DOR . One of the cities which joined Jabin against Joshua ( Joshua 11:2 ), and whose king was killed ( Joshua 12:23 ). It lay apparently on or near the border between Manasseh and Asher, so that its possession was ambiguous ( Joshua 17:11 ). The aborigines were not driven out ( Judges 1:27 ). It was administered by Ben-abinadab for Solomon ( 1 Kings 4:11 ). Though Josephus refers to it as on the sea-coast, and it is traditionally equated to Tantura , north of Cæsarea, the reference to the ‘heights of Dor’ rather suggests that it was in some hilly district such as the slope of the range of Carmel. The name seems quite forgotten.
