Bohan (2)

Bohan STONE OF. Mr. Clermont Ganneau thinks he discovered this ancient landmark in the present "Hajar el-Asbah (stone of the finger) of the Bedawin, not far from the place where the Wady Daber enters into the narrow plain which separates it from the Dead Sea "(Quarterly Statement, of the "Pal. Explor. Fund," April, 1871, p. 105). Subsequently he describes it (ibid. April, 1874, p. 80 sq.) as "the most northerly of four or five great blocks of rocks, probably fallen from the summit or flank of the mountain;" "very nearly cubical in form, and measuring two metres and a half in height," and "cloven in the middle." Dr. Tristram, however, thinks this conjecture, "though ingenious, yet hardly satisfactory" (Bible Places, p. 94).
