Ashnah Tristram

Ashnah. Tristram identifies one of the cities thus named (Jos 15:36) with the modern Asolin (Bible Places, p. 48), which is laid down on the Ordnance Map under the name of Aslin, one mile north-east of Surah (Zoreah), as a ruined village with a cistern adjoining. The other Ashnah (Jos 15:43) he regards (Bible Places, p. 43) as the present Idhnah, six miles south-east of Beit-Jebrim; but this is certainly the Jedna of Eusebius and Jerome, who both speak of Asna as a separate place. Lieut. Conder merely gives (Tent Work, ii,334) Ghasheina as the site of one of the two towns called Ashnah, without indicating its locality or distinguishing which.
