Sur

sûr (Codex Vaticanus Ἀσσούρ , Assoúr , Codex Alexandrinus Σούρ , Soúr ): Those that dwelt in Sur are mentioned along with the inhabitants of Sidon, Tyre, Ocina, etc., as dreading the approach of Holofernes and the Assyrian any ( Judith 2:28 ). The names run from North to South, and Sur immediately follows Tyre (modern Sūr ), with which, therefore, it can hardly be identified. No probable identification has been suggested. See also JERUSALEM .
