Edumia a place thus described by Eusebius and Jerome (in the Onomasticon, s.v. Ε᾿δουμια, Edomia): "of the tribe of Benjamin; and there is still a village Eduma, Ε᾿δουμά, in Acrabatine, about twelve miles east of Neapolis." From this language, Leclerc (not. in loc.) infers that Adummim is meant; but this lay farther south. Van de Velde finds the locality in the modern village Daumeh, S.E. of Nablous (Narrat. 2:308); a coincidence first pointed out by Robinson (Researches, 3:103), as lying in the prescribed position, although not within the tribe of Benjamin (apparently a conjecture of Euseb.). It is situated on the tableland overlooking the Jordan valley, and contains a fountain and ancient sepulchers in the outskirts (Robinson, Later Researches, pages 292, 293).
