a large village located by Jerome (Ononmast. s.v. Senna, "Magdal-senna, quod interpretatur Turris Senna;" but perhaps he has merely misread Eusebius, μεγάλη Σεννά ) at seven (Euseb. eight) Roman miles north of Jericho, on the border of Judea. Dr. Robinson (Bib. Res. 3:295) inclines to identify it with the Mejdel in the central mountains of Palestine, near the edge of the Ghor, at the upper end of the Wady Fasail, and not far from Daumeh, the ancient Edumia (Van de Velde, Syr. and Pal. 2:307).
