(ὁ Σαρών v.r. ἀσσαρῶνα , i.e. הִשָּׁרוֹן, the Sharon), the district in which Lydda stood (Acts 9:35); the Greek form of the name SHARON (See SHARON) (q.v.) of the Old Test. "The absence of the article from Lydda, and its presence before Saron, is noticeable, and shows that the name denotes a district — as in ‘ The Shefelah,' and in our own ‘ The Weald,' ‘ The Downs.'"
