Ash'nah (Heb. Ashnah', אִשׁנָה, fortified, otherwise bright; Sept. Α᾿σνά), the name of two cities, both in the "plain" of the tribe of Judah.
1. One mentioned between Zorah and Zanoah (Jos 15:33), apparently in the region north of Eleutheropolis and west of Jerusalem (see Keil, Comment. in loc.), and near the boundary-line, almost within the territory afterward assigned to Dan (see Jos 19:41), and probably near Beth-Shemesh, possibly at the site of the modern "large village Deir Aban" (Robinson, Researches, new ed. iii 154). It is probably the Asan (Α᾿σάν) or Bethasan (Θηβασά) placed I y Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v.) at 15 or 16 Roman miles west of Jerusalem.
2. Another town, certainly in Judah, mentioned between Jiphtah and Nezib (Jos 15:43); apparently in the region immediately south and east of Eleutheropolis (comp. Keil, Comment. in loc.), probably not very far from this last; possibly the present Beit Alanm, a ruined village on a low mound (Robinson, Researches. ii, 403). Eusebius and Jerome also speak of an Asna (Α᾿σνά, Onomast. s.v.), but without any particulars.
