la - shā´ron , la - shâr´on ( לשּׁרון , lashshārōn or la - shārōn , the King James Version Sharon ): A royal city of the Canaanites taken by Joshua, named with Aphek ( Joshua 12:18 ). Possibly we should here follow the reading of Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus), "the king of Aphek in Sharon." Eusebius, Onomasticon (s.v. "Saron") mentions a region between Mt. Tabor and the Lake of Tiberias called Sarona. This is probably represented by the ancient site Sarona, on the plateau 6 1/2 miles Southwest 2 of Tiberias. If Massoretic Text is correct, this may be the place intended.
