A city in the southern lowlands of Judah first given to the tribe of Judah (Josh 15:42) and later reassigned to the tribe of Simeon (Josh 19:7). It is possibly the same city listed as a city of refuge and given to the Levites (1Chr 6:59), although it is elsewhere called Ain (Josh 21:16). The site is not known.
