Khurbet Sar, the probable representative of this locality, is laid down at seven miles west of Amman, with notes of a pool, tower, and sarcophagi adjoining, on the reduced Map of the Ordnance Survey in the fragment published east of the Jordan; but the Memoirs containing details have not appeared. It is situated on the road running along the south side of Wady Sir. Tristram says (Bible Places, page 337): "It consists only of grass- grown mounds and rows of foundations at the very head of the valley, above a marshy spring, the highest source of the Seir." Merrill says (East of the Jordan, page 405), "Sar we made to be 3400 feet above the sea-level;" the Map indicates 1390 feet.
