49. Sams -
Michael Avi-Yonah (The Madaba Mosaic Map, Jerusalem
Stevenson has proposed to complete this name as Sara (AV: Zemaraim)
in the boundary of Benjamin (LXX Joshua XVIII,22 On.158,5
Semreim without an identification) and to place it at
Kh. Samra. Lagrange, Rev. bibl.1897, P.172 proposed the
monastery of St. Sabas, but this is quite unlikely, as none of
the great monasteries of the fifth century appears on the map.
A possible identification seems to be with Sams (On.
158,4) identified with the En shemesh of Joshua XVIII,17, now
'Ein Haud on the Jericho road. The version same[s] occurs
in LXX A.
