Beth-anab (q. d. בֵּיתאּעֲנָב, house of figs) is probably the correct name of a village mentioned by Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Α᾿νώβ, Anob) under the form Μετοαννάκ or Bethoannaba, as lying four Roman miles east of Diospolis (Lydda), while Jerome (ib.) speaks of still another name, Bethannaba, as belonging to a village eight miles in the same direction. Van de Velde (Memoir, p. 293) ingeniously reconciles these statements by assigning the first locality as that of the modern Annabeh, and the second as Beit-Nuba, which lie respectively at the required distances south-east of Ludd.
