Apherima

Apherima (Α᾿φερειμά in Josephus), one of the three "governments" (νόμους) added to Judaea from Samaria (and Galilee, 1 Maccabees 10:30) by Demetrius Soter, and confirmed by Nicanor (1 Maccabees 11:34; comp. Joseph. Ant. 13, 4, 9; and see Reland, Paloest. p. 178). It is probably the same as the EPHRAIM SEE EPHRAIM of the New Test. (Joh 11:54) and the OPHRAH SEE OPHRAH (q.v.) of the Old.
