Σαλεὶμ κατὰ θάλασσαν [taking the last syllable for יִמָּה, to the sea], v.r. Σασιμά; Vulg. Seesima), a place in the tribe of Issachar, between Mount Tabor and the Jordan (Jos 19:22). A trace of the name may yet remain in the village of Sirin, north of Wady Sherar, near where it joins Wady Bireh, southeast of Tabor.
