Dura (dû'rah), circle. The place where Nebuchadnezzar set up his golden image. Daniel 3:1. Layard identifies it with Dur, below Tekrit, on the east bank of the Tigris; but Oppert would place it, with more probability, to the southeast of Babylon, near a mound called Dúair, where he found the pedestal of a colossal statue.
