Mentioned only in Judges 11:33 (a Deuteronomistic document) as the place where Jephthah paused in his pursuit and slaughter of the Ammonites. According to Eusebius and Jerome ("Onomastica Sacra," ed. Lagarde, 2d ed., 96,10 225,5) it was situated six or seven Roman miles from Philadelphia (Rabbath-Ammon) ' but it is not possible to define the exact modern site. In the time of Eusebius, the place was still noted for its vineyards.
