Agaba (῎Αγαβα), a fortress near Jerusalem, which Galesius, its governor, restored to Aristobulus, the son of Alexander Jannaeus (Josephus, Ant. 13, 24, 5). The place cannot well be identified on account of the various readings (see Hudson's ed. 1, 602, note), one of which (Γαβαθά) even seems to identify it with GABBATHA SEE GABBATHA (q.v.). It was perhaps the eminence of GIBEAH SEE GIBEAH (q.v.).
