ad´i -da ( Ἀδιδά , Adidá ). A town of the Benjamin tribe near Lod and Ono located upon a hill facing the "plain country" of Judea, rebuilt and fortified by Simon Maccabee (1 Macc 12:38), who later encamped here to meet the army of Tryphon (1 Macc 13:13; Ant , XIII , vi, 5). It was also here that Aretas, king of Arabia, met Alexander Janneus in battle and defeated him (Ant. , XIII , xv, 2). Perhaps the El -Hadı̄theh of today located about three miles east of Lydda or Lod. See HADID .
