This vicinity is included in the reduced Map of the Ordnance Survey east of the Jordan, and is described by Lieut. Conder in the Quar. Statement of the "Pal. Explor. Fund," October 1881, page 275 sq. It was also visited by Dr. Merrill, and his investigations (East of the Jordan, page 241 sq.) confirm the views expressed by us under the art. PISGAH. Tristram remarks (Bible Places, page 349), "A recent traveller has endeavored to show that Jebel Shiagha, the spot where these ruins stand, is Pisgah. The arguments adduced would be equally conclusive in behalf of any of the many flattopped mounds of the neighborhood, one of which must have been Pisgah, although its Arabic equivalent, Fethkhah, seems to have dropped out of the local nomenclature."
