Sepharvaim (2)

Sepharvaim Dr. William Hayes Ward, who has recently explored the region in question, and is well versed likewise in Assyriology, finds in the ancient inscriptions four cities or districts called Sippara, the Greek, equivalent of this name. Of these the two principal ones, he thinks, were the "Sippara of the Sun," discovered by Mr. Rassam at Abu-Habba, and the original place, known as the "Sippara of Anuenit," being the one where Sargon I was exposed in his infancy, the town of Xisuthrus, the one captured by Cyrus without fighting, and the seat of the famous Jewish school, which Dr. Ward believes he has found in the large tell or mound still bearing the mediaeval name of Anbar,

south of the point of the effluence of the Sokkameh canal from the Euphrates. See Hebraica, January 1886, page 79 sq.
