Jebell Maderah, with which we may probably identify this mountain, lies on the south side of a wady of the same name, five miles south-west of the pass of Sufah, and is a round, isolated hill, with numerous blocks of stone on the base and summit, which Arab tradition ascribes to a destructive shower, as a punishment for inhospitality on the part of the ancient inhabitants (Palmer, Desert of the Exodus, page 351).
