Eboda (Ε᾿βόδα), a city mentioned only by Ptolemy (17, 18) as situated in the sea- board quarter of Arabia Petraea (see Reland, Palast. p. 463), in 65.25 and 30.5, and marked on the Peutinger Table as lying on the Roman road 23 Roman miles south of Elusa (q.v.). Dr. Robinson (Researches, 1:287) discovered the site in the modern el-Abdeh (otherwise Aujeh, ib. page 560), eight hours from the site of Elusa, at the junction of Wady es-Seram with Wadi el-Birein (ib. page 284). It contains extensive ruins, situated on a rocky ridge from sixty to one hundred feet high; especially the remains of an acropolis, of a capacious castle, and of a large Greek church, with numerous walls, columns etc., still standing, and several wells or reservoirs, but no inhabitants (ib. pages 285, 286).
