(Γαβάλα ), a place located by Ptoleny in Phoenicia (Reland, Palest. page 458), and the seat of one of the Palestinian bishoprics (ibid. page 220). Schwarz (Palest. page 170) refers to Josephus' mention of a Galilaean village by this name built by Herod (Ant. 15:8, 5, where, however, the text has Γάβα v.r. Γάβαλα and Γάμαλα, evidently the GABA (See GABA) [q.v.] of other passages), and to the Talmudical notices of a Gebul (גְּביּל, border); finding both in "the village Jebul, three Eng. miles N.E. of Beth- Shean," doubtless the ruins by that name marked on Van de Velde's Map five miles N. of Beisan. (See GAMALA).
