Gabe (Γαβέ), a considerable place (πολίχνη, oppidum) mentioned by Eusebius and Jerome (Ononmast. s.v. Γαβαθών, Gabbathon) as lying 16 R. miles from Csesarea, in the edge of the plain of Esdraelon; thought by Robinson to be the modern Jeba (i.e., Gibeah), a large village on the slope of the range of hills N. of Nablus, containing an ancient town (Researches, 3:151). It can hardly have been of sufficient importance to be commemorated by the coins found with the inscription "of the Gabinians" (Γαβηνῶν, Reland, Palest. page 769).
