Pirathon (2)

Pirathon The modern Ferata is laid down on the Ordnance Map at five and a half miles south-west of Nablus, and described in the accompanying Menzoirs (2:162) as "a small village of ancient appearance, standing on a tell or mound, with a rock-cut tomb to the south and a sacred museum to the east." It has "a few cisterns and the remains of a sarcophagus" (ibid. page 285). Instead of this identification Lieut. Conder, with less probability, suggests Feron, lying ten miles west of Sebustieh, and described (ibid. page 164) as "a small village on a slope, at the edge of the plain, with a few trees and a well to the east. The inhabitants are all Greek Christians."
