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-’Amûd , S. of Iskanderûna , which seems to have been formerly called Turân . 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.
