Aphe'kah (Heb., Aphekah', אֲפֵקָה, fem. of Aphek; Sept. Α᾿φακά v . r. Φακούκ), a city in the mountain tract of Judah, mentioned between Bethtappuah and. Humtah (Jos 15:53). Raumer (PalEst. p. 170) and others confound this with the Aphek of Jos 12:18; but the Hebrews accentuation of the names is different. Schwarz (Palest. p. 106) finds it in the village Abik, 4 miles east of Jannuth; but this position is entirely out of region of the associated names, which require a locality near Hebron, perhaps between that place and Tappuah (Keil, Comment. in loc.), possibly at the ruined site Sibta (Van de Velde, Map).
