Irpeel (2)

Irpeel is conjectured by Conder (Tent Work, 2:337), to be represented by the modern Rafat, as two of the radical letters are the same. This place lies one and a half miles north of el-Jib (Gibeon), and is thus described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:13, also 155): "A small hamlet on a ridge, with a spring to the west, and many rock-cut tombs.... Traces of ruins: cisterns cut in rocks, and rough pillar-shafts, with ruins of a modern village and a Mukan.
