Sur (2)

Sur (Σούρ; Vulg. omits), one of the places on the sea-coast of Palestine, which are named as having been disturbed at the approach of Holofernes with the Assyrian army (Judith 2, 28). It cannot be Tyre, the modern Sur, since that is mentioned immediately before. Some have suggested Dor, others a place named Sora, mentioned by Stephanus of Byzantium as ins Phoenicia, Which they would identify with Athlt; others, again, Surafend. But none of these are satisfactory. The apocryphal character of the book itself makes us suspicious of the accuracy of the name. SEE JUDITH.
