Nib'shan (Heb. Nibshan', נַבשָׁן [but with the def. article], light soil [Gesen.l or fortress [Furst]; Sept. Νεβσάν v.r. Ναφλαζών), a city in the wilderness of Judah, mentioned between Secacah and the "City of Salt" (Jos 15:62). It is barely mentioned by Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Nephram). It is possibly the ruined site marked on Van de Velde's Mlap as Kasi el-Zeiman on Wady Hasaseh, which runs up from the Dead Sea not far N. of Ain-Jidy.
