A city of Galilee (Josephus, Life, p. 51; War, 2, 20, 6), situated twenty stadia from Araba, and the same distance from Gabara (Reland, Palest. p. 1021); now Sukhnim, a village in the center of Galilee, first visited by G. Schultz, and identified by Grossz (Ritter, Erdk. 16, 768; see also Robinson, Later Res. p. 83, 85). There are at Sukhnim graves of some famous Jewish rabbins (Schwarz, Palest. p. 188).
